    Opera Night

    Opera Night with Bernard Clarke - Wagner's Lohengrin Recorded in April 2014 at the Staatsoper, Vienna. Tonight Mikko Franck conducts the Vienna State Opera Chorus and Orchestra.

    Saturday May 7th - Mozart’s Die Entführung aus dem Serail

    Met Music Director James Levine returns to a work he has long cherished, Mozart’s delightful comic gem of wily captives in a harem. Coloratura soprano sensation Albina Shagimuratova stars in the bravura role of Konstanze. Rising tenor Paul Appleby is her lover, Belmonte, soprano Kathleen Kim is her shrewd maid, Blondchen, and bass Hans-Peter König delivers comic gravitas as the overseer of the harem.
