Join us at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 13 for our 2016-2017 Met Opera season finale -- Strauss's 'Der Rosenkavalier'. Renee Fleming and Elina Garanca lead the cast, under the baton of Sebastian Weigle.
Giacomo Puccini's 'La Boheme' opened this past weekend at Minnesota Opera, and it runs through May 21. There are two Mimis in this production -- Nicole Cabell and Miriam Khalil -- and Classical MPR's Julie Amacher recently sat down with them for a Perf Chat in the Maud Moon Weyerhauser Studio.
On Thursday, May 11, at 7:30 p.m., we'll be airing a special broadcast of Puccini's 'La Boheme', live from the Minnesota Opera. We'll celebrate on Morning Glories with music from the great operas of Puccini.
It snows onstage in 'La Boheme,' but that's the least of the sorrows to be borne in Giacomo Puccini's famously weepy classic, which Minnesota Opera has brought to the Ordway in a production that hits all the highs and all the lows.
Join us at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 6 for the comedy/tragedy of Cyrano de Bergerac and his beloved Roxane -- a love story for the ages, live from the Metropolitan Opera. Tenor Roberto Alagna stars in the title role, opposite rising star Jennifer Rowley.
