“To start its eleventh season, the Connecticut Lyric Opera stepped up, moving past the standard repertoire of Donizetti, Mozart and Puccini to play with one of the big boys: Wagner. The company’s November production of “The Flying Dutchman” was more than a fine evening at the opera, it was a rite of passage. The orchestra was bigger, the stage direction by Andy Ottoson was the company’s finest yet, and the chorus was full of strong voices. All the parts added up perfectly, and in the center of it all was Music Director Adrian Sylveen, who had the audience at the Garde riding wave after wave of Wagner’s complex and relentless score.”

– Milton Moore, New London Day
