As usual, the Washington Concert Opera had excellent soloists, and a very good orchestra and chorus. The rarely performed opera was a delight to hear.

The lead singer was truly outstanding. These are young artists and they sang as though they have been in training for decades. They are future stars. Congratulations to the Washington Concert Opera for such an excellent production.
