    Dear readers, we have interviewed Leah Crocetto already, for her Il Trovatore at North Carolina Opera. She is an incredibly gifted young singer, and her interesting answers can be found [here].





    Now, Luiz Gazzola will have the pleasure of seeing her for the second time live on stage, in her Santa Fe Opera performance of the role of Anna Erisso in Rossini's Maometto Secondo, which Opera Lively is extensively covering, with full announcement [click here], an interview with Dr. Philip Gossett - Rossini scholar who is assisting SFO in this production (see his interview [here]), an upcoming interview with Luca Pisaroni (in the role of Maometto), and now a second interview with Leah. [Opera Lively interview # 37] Here it is:

    ------------

    OL - Dear Leah, I'd like to ask you some follow-up questions on Maometto II to include in our coverage. But first, let me compliment you on your interview with Opera News Magazine. We are happy that we spotted you before they did! (laughs)

    LC - Dearest Luiz, thank you so much for the compliments on the interview for Opera News! It was great fun! ...

    In North Carolina Opera's production of Il Trovatore, Leonora was rising star American soprano Leah Crocetto. Opera Lively interviewed her before the show. It is fitting to give this interview more prominence in our Home page now, since Leah Crocetto has just been interviewed for the June 2012 issue of Opera News Magazine. We spotted her before they did! [Opera Lively interview # 21]

    Opera News said of her that her voice is "large and lustrous, with formidable chest tones and a dazzling top." She is scheduled for her Met debut in 2015.

    Ms. Crocetto has been accumulating prestigious awards in her flourishing career. She is a 2010 Grand Finals Winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and was the First Place Winner, People’s Choice and the Spanish Prize Winner of the 2009 José Iturbi International Music Competition, and winner of the Bel Canto Foundation competition.
