Arts Story  July 28, 2006, by Robert Faires

Artistic Director Richard Buckley on returning to the Carlisle Floyd opera that launched his conducting career

Austin Opera Takes Aim at the Election With Its Adaptation of The Manchurian Candidate
Composer Kevin Puts and librettist Mark Campbell shoot to thrill in their opera based on Richard Condon's Cold War classic
Arts Story  September 15, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...The company is opening its 30th season with a semi-staged performance of Puts and Campbell's The Manchurian Candidate, fully mindful of the closeness of Election Day. AO Artistic Director Richard Buckley has spoken of his desire for the company to explore the operatic repertoire beyond the staples of the 18th and 19th centuries, and programming newer works – and specifically newer American works – enhances for audiences a sense that opera is still a living art form and one that's relevant to people in this country today..."

Our Shostakovich Year
On the centenary of Dmitri Shostakovich's birth, Austin arts groups join forces to throw the Russian composer a yearlong party
Arts Story  December 30, 2005, by Robert Faires
"...To some extent, he did that by writing music that would please his Communist overseers (a point of controversy with many of Shostakovich's critics), but he also managed to compose works of enormous power, music that pierced the Iron Curtain and captured the ears – and hearts – of music lovers around the globe. Indeed, his music resonates deeply enough that ALO Artistic Director Richard Buckley was inspired to conceive of a citywide celebration and pitch it to a community where he had only lived a few months, and that community took him up on it..."

Philip Glass' Waiting for the Barbarians arrives when its message is urgently needed
Arts Story  January 19, 2007, by Robert Faires

A Maestro Prepares
Before the baton goes up, conductors have to know the score – every note of it
Arts Story  April 1, 2011, by Robert Faires
"...According to a couple of artists who have made conducting their life's work, both of whom will be on the podium in Dell Hall in early April, a lot. Peter Bay, music director of the Austin Symphony Orchestra, and Richard Buckley, principal conductor of Austin Lyric Opera, agree that the amount of prep time varies with the type of work (opera, ballet, symphony) and the maestro's familiarity with a particular piece – having conducted something before can cut the advance work down to as little as a few hours of review..."

In Austin Lyric Opera's production of 'Elektra,' conductor Richard Buckley succeeds in conveying the complexity, richness, cruelty, and humanity of this work
Arts Review  January 14, 2005, by Robert Faires
"...From this ancient Greek drama of bloody murder and retribution, Richard Strauss composed one of the 20th century's first great operas, and Richard Buckley has chosen it as one of the first great challenges for Austin Lyric Opera in his tenure as artistic director. By operatic standards, Elektra is relatively brief (roughly an hour and a half), but compacted into its single act is enough roiling emotion – rage, regret, ridicule, despair, elation, sorrow, fear, and loathing – to fill a cycle of operas..."

Arts Column  August 29, 2003, by Robert Faires

Bats Left, Sings Right
With help from Esther's Follies, Austin Lyric Opera turns Strauss' Viennese waltz into a Texas two-step
Arts Story  May 30, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...The funny thing is, it was the opera's idea. Two years ago, when Austin Lyric Opera conductor Richard Buckley, in his former role as ALO artistic director, was considering what might make for a splashy debut in the Long Center, he had the inspiration for an opera set in Austin – created by taking an existing work and rewriting its libretto to spotlight local landmarks and traditions..."

Austin Lyric Opera’s debut in the Long Center serves Bizet’s classic in a clear, uncluttered way that satisfies
Arts Review  April 25, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...On opening night, in that instant between conductor Richard Buckley raising his arms and the first downbeat of Bizet's oh-so-familiar overture, you could sense from the pit the anticipation of a Thoroughbred at the racetrack before the bell. This was a moment that Buckley and the musicians of the Austin Lyric Opera orchestra – and no doubt all the local performers still unseen behind the curtain – were so ready for: the first performance in ALO's new home at the Long Center..."

Change of Aria Code
Leaving "Lyric" behind, Austin Opera launches a new era
Arts Story  November 6, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...premiere of Philip Glass' Waiting for the Barbarians, there was a financial crisis that undercut its forward momentum – the opera is back in growth mode. The 2011 sale of the company's Lake|Flato-designed headquarters on Barton Springs Road resolved the debt issues that troubled it for years, and subscriptions have been on the rise since the 25th-anniversary season, according to Artistic Director Richard Buckley..."

Za vashe zdorov'ye, Shostakovich!
Fifteen local arts organizations work together to celebrate Shostakovich's 100th birthday
Arts Story  March 18, 2005, by Robert Faires
"...Austin didn't do much to mark the recent centenaries of Kurt Weill, Aaron Copland, Richard Rodgers, or William Walton, and it looks as if we'll let the 100-year birth anniversaries of Marc Blitzstein and Harold Arlen in 2005 pass without fanfare, but we've got Shostakovich covered! The Russian composer passes the century mark in 2006, and a full 15 area arts organizations are working together to commemorate the occasion with performances, lectures, symposiums, perspectives, and art exhibitions. Austin Lyric Opera Artistic Director Richard Buckley is at the head of this effort, which has already been a year in the planning, and his company will launch the festivities – officially known as Shostakovich 100: Austin Celebrates – with a staging of the composer's Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, Jan..."

Austin Lyric Opera brought all the power in Puccini's opera to bear in a staging that pitted heaven against hell
Arts Review  February 7, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...Maestro Richard Buckley, however, despite working from a spot down below, was always on the side of the angels. The robustness of the orchestral sound, its richness in communicating drama and character – not only in the heavily weighted sections of the score but also in the lighter passages, which the musicians handled with a notable delicacy and lyricism – revealed just how far Buckley has taken this orchestra in 10 years..."

Hansel and Gretel
Set in the Gilded Age, this operatic fairy tale really resonates with the present
Arts Review  April 30, 2010, by Robert Faires
"...Here, Adriana Zabala's Hansel and Alicia Berneche's Gretel come across as strong and resourceful enough to save their own bacon, as it were. (They also convey convincingly that alternating friction and affection between siblings.) But I have to say, there is another hero in this Hansel and Gretel: ALO principal conductor Richard Buckley..."

Il Trovatore
Austin Lyric Opera's 'Il Trovatore' featured voices in good form, from the leads to the chorus, but the relationships among the characters was clearly missing
Arts Review  October 14, 2005, by Ann Ciccolella
"...And the music is still clearly Verdi: brilliant, its strong melodies easy to enjoy even at a first hearing. From the orchestra pit, Richard Buckley, now in his second season as artistic director, poured his passion for the work into the conducting, but something was awry..."
