Saturday July 23rd - Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor

Bernard Clarke brings us Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor a tragic opera in three acts. Diana Damrau is Lucia, Charles Castronovo is Sir Edgardo, Ludovic Tezier is Lord Enrico Ashton, Taylor Stayton is Lucia’s bridegroom, Kwangchul Youn is a chaplain, Peter Hoare is a huntsman and Rachael Lloyd is Lucia’s maid. This production was recorded in April at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Daniel Oren conducts the Chorus and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House.

Saturday July 30th - Puccini’s La Boheme

Tonight, Bernard Clarke introduces a production of Puccini’s La Boheme from the Saarland State Theatre. Ho-Yoon Chung is Rodolfo, Alessandra Marianelli sings Musetta, Fabio Capitanucci is Marcello. Karel Mark Chichon conducts the German Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and the Saarland State Theatre Chorus in a production recorded at the Congress Hall, Saarbrucken, Germany.

Opera Night - Verdi's Macbeth

It is not the last word in sophistication, it sometimes lurches back and forth between breathless, barrel-thumping choruses and highly nuanced and thoughtful character studies, but Macbeth is extraordinarily exciting and testament to the young Verdi's desire to really trying something new. This week's Opera Night has a performance from the Lyon Opera House from winter of last year and features the Lyon Opera Chorus & Orchestra under conductor Kazushi Ono. The soloists include Evez Abdulla, baritone, as Macbeth; Riccardo Zanellato, bass, as Banco (Banquo); and Dmytro Popov, tenor, as Macduff...

Verdi famously maintained he wanted a "she devil" in the role of Lady Macbeth-find out how rising Russian soprano Iano Tamar copes with this lady of pure evil.
