Le nozze di Figaro,Don Giovanni & Cosi fan tutte

Featuring the MDLO Institute Artists and the MDLO Orchestra!


Maryland Lyric Opera presented a powerful concert performance of Puccini’s seldom-heard ‘La Fanciulla del West’...The 80-piece orchestra, trusted with most of the opera’s heavy lifting, played its collective heart out under MDLO Music Director Louis Salemno, who conducted with authority and conviction.”

La Fanciulla del West, The Music Center at Strathmore September 2018

“From the opening refrain, the MDLO orchestra, under MDLO Conductor and Music Director Louis Salemno, knocked me back in my seat.”
— OperaGene about La Fanciulla Del West
