    Emmanuel Villaume also seemed at home in Heggie’s riveting score. Leonard Foglia’s original directing re-staged by Keturah Stickann made Moby-Dick’s second sail into Dallas nothing short of a stunning success.

    ...with Villaume on the podium, Heggie’s score comes across as much more neo-tonal, lush, magnificently constructed and neo-romantic opera than what I perceived in the score back then. Vocal lines soar, giving singers some great bel-canto phrases that are grateful for the voice. ... Villaume’s reading of Moby-Dick is revelatory and revolutionized my already high impression of the score

    All of the above is in the hands of conductor Emmanuel Villaume. He is a better conductor every time I see him and he was terrific the first time. It is rare, very rare indeed, that major conductors with a worldwide career in symphony and opera continue to grow musically and technically. In fact, I am hard pressed to name even one, other than Villaume. His baton technique is completely controlled, communicative, clear and expressive. But, one thing that sets him apart is his careful attention to the music between the singing, especially when the singing is conversational. Sometimes, this is little more than a few measures, but Villaume takes us from one thought to the next, or one character to the next, using the fragment of music to set up the next thought or statement.
