From the soul of an artist!
Experience this intimate recital by the celebrated American mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard!
Accompanied by pianist John Arida, she offers a collection of songs that have special resonance to her as an artist, woman, and mother.
Enjoy Stephen Sondheim’s “The Glamorous Life” from A Little Night Music, “Somewhere” from West Side Story, and “Take me to the World” from the television production Evening Primrose. From Walt Disney’s Cinderella: “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” (music and words by Mack David, Al Hoffman, and Jerry Livingston). Classical sections include “Je t’adore brigand” from Jacques Offenbach’s La Périchole; “D ’amour l’ardente flamme,” from Hector Berlioz’s La damnation de Faust; “Sgombra è la sacra selva” from Vincenzo Bellini’s Norma, and Jerome Kern’s “The Way You Look Tonight,” written for the Astaire/Rogers film Swing Time.
One of opera’s most adored stars, Isabel Leonard is a two-time Grammy winner who continues to dazzle audiences on major world stages from Vienna and Glyndebourne to New York and LA. Her performance as Rosina thrilled Dallas audiences in TDO’s 2014 The Barber of Seville. Now she returns to our virtual stage with a host of hits sure to excite fans everywhere!
She has “the vocal and physical beauty, the natural stage charisma, and the sure dramatic instincts to win all hearts from the onset.”—Chicago Tribune
