Live Offerings - Saturday, February 5, 2011
An unusually active day on the Web today, what with very few European stations carrying the Met today (odd!) and instead going off on their own. Listeners are strongly encouraged to browse our Saturday page themselves and see which of the many operas on offer appeal to them. With such a varied selection, there are sure to be offerings that will please every taste! A remarkably and unexpectedly varied day!
Four items stand out for this listener during this afternoon, but again, that shouldn't discourage you from also poring over the entire Saturday page yourselves just as soon as you can.
- Deutschlandradio Kultur - Bizet's Pecheurs de Perles, with Cabell, Osborn and Finley.
- Metropolitan Opera (on numerous stations) - Verdi's Simon Boccanegra, with Hvorostovsky, Frittoli, Vargas and Furlanetto.
- NKR Klassik - Yet another Simon Boccanegra(!) with Domingo (in the title role), Poplavskaya, Calleja and, again, Furlanetto.
- Klara - Beethoven's Fidelio, with Kampe and Kaufmann.
Happy listening . . . .
