Amalia Ishak was born in Israel and raised in Italy. She began her music studies at the Luigi Cherubini Conservatory in Florence, and graduated with a Master of Music Degree magna cum laude from Tel Aviv University. Amalia Ishak made her debut with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in the Ponnelle/Mehta production of Carmen. She appeared again with the Philharmonic in La Traviata, The Magic Flute (directed by Jonathan Miller) under the baton of Zubin Mehta, and in De Falla's The Three Cornered Hat under Charles Dutoit. Amalia Ishak is a leading soloist of the New Israeli Opera. She has enjoyed brilliant success and received critical acclaim in numerous productions, including the Marriage of Figaro, Hansel and Gretel, Faust, Don Giovanni, The Barber of Seville (directed by Dario Fo), La Cenerentola with Alberto Zedda, and the New Israeli Opera's first community opera project, Carmen in Tel Aviv (in the title role), an enormous success that was followed by a documentary film. A great honor in Amalia Ishak's career was to be personally selected by the late Leonard Bernstein to perform the world premiere of his work, Arias and Barcarolles, in Israel and later in London. She was described by the Maestro as "a singer of outstanding quality, her musicality and versatility are extraordinary." Another highlight of Amalia Ishak's career was her highly praised interpretation of Petrassi's Magnificat at the theatre of the Rome Opera. Often singing world premieres of outstanding Israeli composers, she appears regularly as guest artist with leading orchestras in Israel and abroad, and in international festivals, including the Israel Festival. She has also recorded for radio and television broadcasts in Israel,America and Europe.
