Opera News celebrates Askren, McIntyre, Gartland, and Boehler in DMMO 2022 season


Congratulations to our artists who were a part of Des Moines Metro Opera's season this year on this wonderful review from Opera News! Bravi Elizabeth Askren, Kristine McIntyre, Sara Gartland, and Matt Boehler!


A Thousand Acres

"Sara Gartland brought a shimmering soprano to the doomed Rose..."

"Kristine McIntyre's perceptive direction managed the seamier elements of the story sensitively and rendered the sisterly relationships to perfection...."

A Midsummer Night's Dream

"Matt Boehler created a hilarious Quince...."

"Conductor Elizabeth Askren led a glittering account of Britten's translucent score."
