Broken Hearts, Exalted Spirits - Soprano Liora Michelle and her favorite musical partners-in-crime, tenor Neal Harrelson and pianist Inna Leytush serve up an afternoon smorgasborg of delightful and consuming duets, arias and songs. Indulge in the mesmerizing music of 'the greats', Verdi, Donizetti, Puccini, Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Lehar and more.

Having begun a steady career in Australia as a principal soprano for the Melbourne City Opera, Liora Michelle’s current performance repertory includes over 25 heroines in opera’s most celebrated works. With a vocal color that suits bel canto as well as the more lyric verismo roles, she is a rare, versatile singer with a remarkable breadth of repertory. She has performed classic lyric soprano roles to critical acclaim, including Mimì, Musetta, Micaela, Nedda, Leonora (Il Trovatore) and Desdemona (Otello) among others.
