2021-2022 Operas within Driving Distance (coming soon)

February 6. Donizetti: Lucia di Lammermoor

February 6.  Donizetti:  Lucia di Lammermoor
This 1956 performance was Maria Callas's only Metropolitan Opera radio performance. It won the competition for Listeners' Choice for this season.

January 30. Gounod: Faust

January 30.  Gounod:  Faust
This 2011 performance was a Live in HD event. The sets and updating the action to post-World War II were not everyone's favorite, but the singers were well-matched and good actors. Jonas Kaufmann and Marina Poplovskaya were the lovers with Rene Pape as Mefistofeles.

January 23. Verdi: Il Trovatore

January 23.  Verdi:  Il Trovatore
This was the joint debut of both Leontyne Price and Franco Corelli (Leonora and Manrico), with Met stars Robert Merrill and Irene Dalis (Count di Luna and Azucena) making up the star quartet. A truly historic performance for this year of archival material.
