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.”

“From the opening refrain, the MDLO orchestra, under MDLO Conductor and Music Director Louis Salemno, knocked me back in my seat.”
