It's an exciting time at Lyric. We've all experienced two fantastic main stage productions to open the season and now, it's all eyes on Dead Man Walking. In this issue, we'll explore the opera that opened to tremendous critical acclaim on November 2, with composer Jake Heggie and share exclusive video features and audio excerpts from the important and powerful work.
We're also delighted to share a special behind-the scenes look at conductor Enrique Mazzola, stepping onto the podium for Verdi's Luisa Miller and his very first opening night as Lyric's music director designate.
Please don't miss the interview with soprano extraordinaire Sondra Radvanovsky, who talks about her eagerly awaited return to Lyric with the dazzling new semi-staged concert performances of The Three Queens in December and debut portrayal of Lisa in The Queen of Spades in this coming February.
We hope to see you soon for Lyric's powerful presentation of the New York Times best-seller- turned-opera, Dead Man Walking – it's an unforgettable Lyric premiere that everyone is talking about!
