Isabel Leonard Wins Richard Tucker
This year's Richard Tucker Award goes to mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard. All the news announcements are calling it the Heisman Trophy of opera. The prize is intended to predict a big career, as it certainly has done for previous winners like Renée Fleming, Dolora Zajick, Deborah Voigt, David Daniels, Lawrence Brownlee and Joyce DiDonato. Good luck, Isabel.
