Laugh along with Figaro and his pals in Rossini's The Barber of Seville; cheer for brave Leonore, who, disguised as a boy, saves her husband's life in Beethoven's only opera, Fidelio. Ache with the dying courtesan Violetta as she selflessly gives up the only true love she has ever known in Verdi's La traviata, and experience the outrage of a proud Roman officer's wife in Britten's The Rape of Lucretia. Revel in Verdi's Don Carlos-sung in all five acts and in French-and in the drama of dueling monarchs in Mary Stuart.
In Houston, the broadcasts air at noon on Classical 91.7 FM (classical917.org). Houston Grand Opera performances are broadcast nationally via the WMFT Radio Network. Outside the Houston area, please check local listings or visit wmft.com to find a radio station that carries the broadcasts.
