Sunday Morning with Julia Lezhneva

Julia Lezhneva, 23, is a Russian soprano and opera singer.  She was born on Sakhalin Island into a family of geophysicists. She has travelled the world at a  young age performing at concerts, competitions and festivals at some of the world’s greatest venues.   I’m not an opera fan but this young lady is inspiring.  She has found her calling. She has achieved Mastery and Excellence at a very young age.  The joy in her face, her words and her music lights up the room.  This CBS-like “Sunday Morning” clip leaves me invigorated about the generations coming behind us.  Bravo Julia.  You are something special.

And if you are interested in hearing more from Julia Lezhneva, here’s a 2-minute excerpt from Handel’s “Saeviat tellus inter rigores”.

  1. I hesitate to comment because I am not an opera afficianado – but her light shines through her smile, her beaming face and laughing eyes. Her voice is magnificent (the small segment of Hallelujah gave me chills).

    YES!!! From an opera fan!
    In addition to all the comments above, let me add that the first thing that struck me was the clarity in her voice – both on the longer notes and on the incredible agility in the fast stuff.
    I hadn’t heard of her – I’ll be keeping my eyes and ears open for this wonderful singer.
    You’ve made my day, Dave 🙂


  9. Now, there’s someone who enjoys her life.
    Her smile sings in her voice, David… Such grace…
