Susan Bullock, Mark Delavan, Jonathan Burton, Jill Gardner, Yi Li, and more return after their triumphs in La Fanciulla del West last season. MDLO Music Director Louis Salemno conducts a vibrant cast of principals, 78-members of the Maryland Lyric Opera Orchestra, and 80 members of the Maryland Lyric Opera Chorus.
