Some top recommendations for today's fare at GMT1730/EDT 1:30PM:
Tune in to BBC3 for LeClair's Scylla and Glaucus, featuring Karina Gauvin in the role of Circe.
Correction! Bejun Mehta stars in Handel's Orlando at Glimmerglass over many stations of the NPR World Of Opera network, not just one -- and at GMT 1730/EDT 1:30PM
Dwojke Polskie Radio airs a performance of Verdi's Nabucco, with Bruno Caproni and Paoletta Marrocu; Paolo Carignani conducting.
The Opera Stage Series (called by some European Opera) also carries Catalani's La Wally, featuring Violeta Urmana in the title role.
Sveriges Radio P2 reruns the Metropolitan Opera broadcast of Handel's Rodelinda, with Renee Fleming and Stephanie Blythe among others.
And there is another rerun: Verdi's Ballo in Maschera from the Opera Stage Series, with Salvatore Licitra and Dmitri Hvorostovsky; heard over WRTI.
More to come.
