The Metropolitan Opera
Blue Lake Public Radio is excited to continue a great radio tradition when the Metropolitan Opera’s 83rd Saturday Matinee Radio Season begins on December 7 at 1:00.
Launched in 1931, the Metropolitan Opera’s Saturday matinee broadcasts are the longest-running continuous classical music program in radio history. The 83rd season begins with Verdi’s Rigoletto, starring Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Matthew Polenzani, and Sonya Yoncheva, continuing the celebration of Verdi's 200th birthday. Twenty-three broadcasts will be presented on the Toll Brothers–Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network through May 10, 2014, including new productions of Eugene Onegin, Falstaff, Die Fledermaus, Prince Igor, and Werther. Margaret Juntwait returns as the series’ host, joined by commentator Ira Siff. Most broadcasts begin at 1:00 here on Blue Lake, but you can check our online program guide for start times and cast listings each week.
