Anthony Walker, artistic director and conductor of the Washington Concert Opera, presented "Samson et Dalila" at Lisner Auditorium May 13. Principals Frank Porretta, Michelle DeYoung and Greer Grimsley accompanied by the splendid orchestra and chorus brought the audience to its feet. At the cast party and dinner following at the Arts Club of Washington, the maestro hailed WCO as “a small company with a big heart and big aspirations.” The WCO has presented more than 40 operas in a concert format and offers educational programs to introduce school-age children to the world of opera.
