San Diego Opera & La Jolla Music Society to Present Isabel Leonard in Concert

By David Salazar

San Diego Opera and La Jolla Music Society are joining forces to present Isabel Leonard and Pablo Sáinz-Villegas in concert.

The showcase, which is set to take place on Dec. 1, 2022, at the Baker-Baum Concert Hall at The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center, will be the first co-presentation between the two organizations.

The concert will spotlight the musical traditions of Spain.

“I’m thrilled to be presenting this concert by the esteemed mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard. This will be the third time San Diego Opera has presented singers in the perfect acoustic of the Baker-Baum Concert Hall, but this is the first time for us to do so in partnership with the La Jolla Music Society, which I hope will be the beginning of an ongoing relationship,” said San Diego Opera General Director David Bennett in an official press statement.

Leonard and Sáinz-Villegas previously collaborated as part of the Met Opera’s concert series at Versailles in mid-2021.
