More for today...

Starting at 1:30 EDT:

BBC Radio 3 -- From Geneva, a performance of Nozart's La Clemenza di Tito with Charles Workman, Joyce DiDonato, Anna Caterina Antonacci, Marie-Claude Chappuis, Corinna Mologni and Martin Snell, Christian Zacharias conducting.

KBYU -- This station's series of operas from the Utah Festival Opera continues with Offenbach's Tales of Hoffmann with the wonderful tenor, Gerard Powers, conducted by Gerald Steichen.

Radio Oesterreich International -- More Mozart, featuring a recording of Mozart's Zaide (they're also broadcasting a recording of Schauspieldirector, but the Zaide interests us more...), with Diana Damrau, Michael Scade, Matthias Goerne and the Osmin of Franz HAwlata, conducted by Nicholas Harnoncourt.

And starting at 2:00 EDT:

Espace 2 -- A May 2005 performance of an opera we have never heard, Proserpine by Joseph Martin Kraus, featuring the promising soprano, Alexandra Coku, conducted by Christoph Spering.

Latvia Radio Klasika, Musiq3 and Radio Slovenia Tretji -- A performance from Covent Garden of Tchaikovsky's Eugen Onegin with Diana Montague, Amanda Roocroft, Nino Surguladze, Susan Gorton, Rolando Villazón, Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Eric Halfvarson, and Robert Gleadow, Philippe Jordan conducting. Although the Tatiana, Amanda Roocroft, gives us pause, we are eager to hear Villazon's Lenski.

Happy listening!
