Meet the Artists
Described by The New York Times as possessing an “agile coloratura technique and a feeling for the Italianate style… with warmth, full penetrating sound and tenderness,” American soprano Leah Crocetto continues to astonish audiences with her moving portrayals of opera’s greatest heroines.
The 2022/23 season for Leah began with her San Diego Symphony debut in Giuseppe Verdi’s breathtaking Requiem under the baton of Rafael Payare. She also returned to the Sydney Opera House for Opera Australia’s Aida and debuted the fiendish role of Odabella in Attila at Teatro Petruzelli. In recital, she appeared at the Butler School of Music in Austin, Texas, where she is currently on faculty as a Lecturer in Vocal Arts.
Leah also tours with her newly founded trio Momenti, featuring bass-baritone Christian Pursell and pianist Ronny Michael Greenberg for their first concerts in San Francisco, Napa, and her native Adrian, Michigan. Aiming to create unique and empowering music, performing genre-less, yet extensive, rich, and innovative repertoire, they released their first EP in February 2023.
