New Production - Director John Caird
"The supporting roles of unnamed knights, esquires and Flower Maidens were taken with admirable care and commitment by various past and present members of the Ryan Opera Center. "
- John Von Rhein, Chicago Tribune, Nov. 2013
"The Knights, Esquires and Flower Maidens were a notably well-blended and richly sung ensemble, composed of former and present Ryan Center young artists (John Irvin, Richard Ollarsaba, Angela Mannino, J’nai Bridges, Matthew DiBattista, Adam Bonanni, Emily Birsan, Tracy Cantin, Kiri Deonarine and Laura Wilde)."
