'Vi ravviso o luoghi ameni' from La Sonnambula

Count Rodolfo stumbles upon a village only to remember specific places in his memory that remind him how much time has past.

Bass-Baritone, Poet and Teacher Lloyd Reshard, hails from northwest Florida. His 2022-23 season started began performing the title role of Figaro in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro with Fargo-Moorhead Opera followed by Dr. Dulcamara in John Davies’ Pinocchio, Balthazar in Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors, and Death in Holst’s Savitri with First Coast Opera. Coming up, Lloyd will be returning to Fargo for the role of Colline in La Boheme.

Mr. Reshard is the artistic director and a performer in the narrated song cycle Viola: The Song Cycle, which chronicles the tragic accounts of Pensacola’s first black hospital named after its founder, The Viola Edward’s Hospital. 

In addition to performance, Lloyd has written text in collaboration with Haitian-American composer Sydney Guillaume on two choral works, This, Too, Shall Pass (premiered by Master Chorale of Tampa Bay April 2022) and Nou La (premiered by Phoenix Chamber Choir May 2022). Their third collaboration "A Taste of Freedom" will premiere with Spokane Symphony and Chorale in February 2023 on their MASTERWORKS 6: MADE IN AMERICA concert.
