Angela Gheorghiu in concert at the Proms; also in concert, Bryn Terfel;
celebration of Boris Christoff; a rebroadcast of this year's Bayreuth
Festival WALKUERE [for complete information on the times of each Bayreuth
rerun and the stations that will be carrying them and the casts for each
peformance, visit our Bayreuth 2003 page at

Melanie Diener and Aquiles Machado; we also hear a youthful creation from
Verdi, his NABUCCO, with Sergei Leiferkus, Maria Guleghina, Samuel Ramey and
Phyllis Pancella; a classic recording of CONTES D'HOFFMANN with Raoul Jobin
and Andre Cluytens at the podium; a re-broadcast of the world premiere of
Carlisle Floyd's COLD SASSY TREE, starring Patricia Racette --

a rare "live" document of the very night when Maria Callas changed from
being merely a sensation in Italy to being an internationally acknowledged
superstar, her first performance of the title role in Cherubini's MEDEE,
sung in Italian translation at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in 1953
(Vittorio Gui at the helm); close-up retrospective on this year's Bayreuth
Festival offerings [for complete information on the times of each Bayreuth
