Love, passion and romance are the hallmarks of French grand opera, featuring prominently in works such as Roméo et Juliette, Manon, Faust and beyond. Now The Lyric brings together some of the world's famous love songs together for Toujours L'Amour, a celebration of French Grand Opera that showcases its most romantic music. Baltimore favorite Edward Polochick leads the Baltimore Concert Artists Orchestra in a show that features opera stars soprano Nicole Cabell and tenor Stephen Costello -- both renowned internationally for their stage presence and charisma, not to mention their incredible pipes. Sung in French with English surtitles. Learn More

I was pleasantly surprised. Excellent job by both leads, and several supporting roles were also done well. It is not my favorite Shakespeare play--the Queen of Egypt is a ninny, which is insulting to women everywhere--but this Cleopatra played up the humor and did her best with a thankless role. The venue seems to have a better handle on the mosquito problem as well.
Come early and enjoy a picnic dinner in the gorgeous tree-shaded setting of the park and catch The Show Before the Show, which might be a musician, a belly dancer or a juggler or something else — it’s a surprise!
