Mezzo-Soprano, Leslie Middlebrook has been winning recognition and acclaim throughout the United States and Europe from critics and audiences alike. With over 40 roles to her credit, reviewers have called her performances “impressive,” “commanding” and “riveting.”

“Leslie Middlebrook was brilliant…in Suor Angelica. Her Zia Principessa was chilling, towering, full of depth and her voice magnificent. …the most moving and beautifully done Suor Angelica I’ve ever experienced. I was in tears, as was everyone around me, …bravo.”

– Suzanne W. Stout, playwright & author
