  1. The Connecticut Lyric Opera has gathered the best of the best. What a privilege to be under the direction of Steven Fried, whose incitefulness, kindness and dynamic enthusiasm and persistant hard work pulled us into aesthetic arrest and our highest output to date! One can only imagine how good he will cojntinue to get in the years to come
    To add to our success is the genius of Adrian Sylveen and his sensitive direction of some of the finest musicians in the state. Watching him as he effortlessly conducts The Virtuosi Orchestra fills my heart with bliss.
    I can only hope and pray that the heightened euphoria and the synergistic amalgam we all feel is passed on to our wonderful audiences!
    Our new additions, John Tsotsoros and Steven Freid have given us a huge advantage in pleasing audiences everywhere. I can only hope that we have the privilege of their continued availability for all our productions.
