Lyric Family Favorites: June 11
Over the last year or so, with so many of us at home, little pleasures have taken on new meaning. Everyday rituals like a cup of morning coffee developed greater significance. And for some, we learned to love our little homes. In Puccini’s short and sweet “Casa mia,” he writes “My little house, my little house, as small as you may be, you seem an abbey to me.” We hope you enjoy this performance from Sole e Amore by bass Anthony Reed, who recently completed his residency with the Ryan Opera Center Ensemble.
Plus, experience J’Nai Bridges' powerful tribute to the victims of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, listen to a full recording of Lyric’s 2019 production of Elektra, and watch The New Classics: Songs from the New Golden Age of Musical Theater in its entirety.

And the stars were shining, and the earth was scented. The gate of the garden creaked and a footstep grazed the sand…fragrant, she entered and fell into my arms.”
