Word on the Street

Under this new leadership we will experience a Renaissance of opera in Orlando, hopefully at levels not seen here in many decades.

It is wonderful that this company, while loving the traditions and music from the centuries of opera’s creation, is also open to exploring and speaking with a contemporary voice to contemporary audiences.

In its brief existence, Opera Orlando has demonstrated its ability to bring high-quality performances to Orlando and to lift the spirit of the city through the power of opera.

Opera Orlando’s heart-wrenchingly beautiful production of Amahl and the Night Visitors opened with a scene set in modern times.

I loved the voices and the acting, the choice of operas, the updated libretto, the artwork, the program - it felt so fresh!  And I thought the orchestra was fabulous. We have attended the Met many times, and as wonderful as it is, there is a feeling of being a remote spectator. I much prefer the immediacy and power of being close to the action, and it sounds as if the Steinmetz Hall will be perfect.
