Geoffrey Riggs on WMNR tonight!
An alert to all OperaCast visitors, especially those who loved the singing of the late Lorraine Hunt Lieberson. Geoffrey Riggs, the heart and brain behind OperaCast, will be appearing tonight as the guest on Evening at the Opera with Doug Fox on WMNR. You can listen to the entire four-hour program, starting at 8:00PM EST on their nice sounding broadband MP3 stream.
During her all too brief career, Ms. Hunt sang a broad range of music, from Rameau, Charpentier and Handel, through Mozart, Bizet, Berlioz and more modern works by Adams, Britten, Harbison and Peter Lieberson. She had been scheduled to appear in the world premiere of Adams' Doctor Atomic, but was forced to cancel. Her final performances were singing her husband, Peter Lieberson's song cycle, Naruda Songs, on tour in several American cities. You can expect to hear from all or most of these quarters tonight.
