The theater, orchastra, costumes, cast and coreography were all very nice. It was a little hard to hear the words and the spirit of the plot did nothing for me. Parking was great. I would return to the venue again but not for this show.
Lyric Opera’s attractive young cast is led by Laura Parker as Princess Helene, in her company debut. Parker is an award-winning young soprano who has performed at Los Angeles Opera, Operaworks, and the Amalfi Coast Music Festival, among others. As her love interest, Lt. Niki, bel canto tenor Chad Hilligus also makes his Lyric Opera debut. Chad made his European stage debut in 2002 in Urbania, Italy as Don Curzio in Le Nozze di Figaro, returning in 2003 with the Rossini Festival Orchestra. He has performed with Nashville Opera, Tulsa Opera, Sarasota Opera, Ash Lawn Opera Festival, Lyric Opera of Kansas City, and Utah Lyric Opera.
After her triumphant debut in Lyric Opera’s The Merry Widow, Stacey Stofferahn returns as Franzi, the conductor of the ladies’ orchestra. Rounding out the cast are Jeremy Bottroff as Wendolin, Christopher Johnstone as Lt. Montschi, Shirley Giltner as Annerl, Lisa Elliott as Fifi, and Pamela Laurent as Frederica.
General Director Leon Natker will be at the podium; directing and designing is Artistic Director J. Sherwood Montgomery with stage costumes by Pam Stompoly-Ericson.
