Cuban soprano Laura León is quickly becoming a rising star on the operatic stages with a voice that “sparkles, seduces and languishes.” Laura made her dèbut as Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte with Orchestra Miami under the baton of Elaine Rinaldi, as well as a Florida Grand Opera dèbut as Frasquita in Carmen with subsequent performances as Mother of Peasant in Before Night Falls and Cristina Kahlo in Frida.

Last season, Laura performed as Adina in L’elisir d’amore with Opera in Williamsburg, Woman I in Frida with both El Paso Opera and Opera Southwest, Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi with On Site Opera, Giulietta/Antonia/Stella/Olympia in Les contes d’Hoffmann with Opera Lousiane, Mozart’s Mass in C and Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music with Mid-America Productions at Carnegie Hall. This season, León will join the Lyric Opera of Chicago in the world premiere of The Factotum, and perform the role of Ana Maria in Héctor Armienta’s Zorro with Opera Southwest. [read more...]


"the soprano giving a full-bodied account of the opera's most famous set-piece" – BroadwayWorld

Gianni Schicchi – "Laura Leon and American John Riesen were a fine match, with the soprano giving a full-bodied account of the opera's most famous set-piece, the aria, 'O mio babbino caro.'"


“…sizable, juicy sound…” – Palm Beach Arts Paper

Don Pasquale – “The most impressive singing – bel canto exemplified – came from the Norina, Laura León. A Florida Grand Opera resident artist from 2015-17, the Cuban-born soprano is now much more than that. A pert and lively figure on stage, she has a sizable, juicy sound, high notes to burn including sustained high Fs – think Queen of the Night and more – and is equally at home in legato singing and intricate coloratura. Her delivery of her opening aria, “Quel guardo il cavaliere,” would stand up to any I know, past or present.”


“…tremendous support…” – Concerto Net

Carmen – “The two other females, Laura León (Frasquita) and Courntey Miller (Mercédès), demonstrated tremendous support. The card trio followed by “Quant au douanier…” were exceptional.”


“…ingratiating feisty persistence…” – Opera News

¡Figaro 90210! – "Laura Leon (Susana), verbally keen in both languages, showed the sunny lyric-soprano flow and ingratiating feisty persistence. The unconventional use of Susana's final aria -- as a shared plea for mutual understanding -- proved thematically relevant and moving”
