in 2001, Maureen O'Flynn had occasion to showcase her bel canto
voice in recital at the Tuesday Morning Music Club in San Antonio,
Texas. She sang a beautiful programme of French, Russian, and Irish
songs and gave the thrilled and very appreciative audience a generous
encore that she began with an opera aria and ended the way she always
closes her recital programs, with a song her father sang in recital
in his day.
Now you can download two of these recital pieces in MP3 format and
listen to them over and over again. Or if you wish, just listen to
an excerpt from each piece (in Real Audio format).
O'Flynn ends her 2001 performances with a company debut performance
of her signature role, Lucia, in Minnesota Opera's production of Lucia
Di Lamermoor and begins the new year with another signature role,
Gilda, in Verdi's Rigoletto at her San Diego Opera debut in
