Opera Returns to Baltimore

Baltimore high culture just got a shot of more life with the news that a new Opera company is in the planning. The Baltimore Opera Theater is the idea of Giorgio Lalov and his wife Jenny Kelly. He hopes to have shows up and running for next season. Soon the deep baritone voice of Figaro and the rest of The Barber of Seville, with many other shows, will return to Baltimore, but exactly where is yet to be seen. A recent article in the Baltimore Sun, mentions perceived resistence from the operators of the Lyric Opera House. Whether this is true or not, who knows, but one would think they would welcome a new local troupe with open arms seeing as, well, what else do they have. Silly huh?
