Tales from the Opera

In an age when, it seemed, opera was finally relegated to the past, she blazed into being. A diva whose talent and ferocity packed opera houses, resurrected forgotten masterworks, and redefined the limits of her art. She lived and died a star- her name was Maria Callas. On the 90th anniversary of her birth, Tales from the Opera pays tribute to a modern icon.

Sunday December 29th
“Why waltz with a guy for ten rounds if you can knock him out in one?" If Rocky Marciano had heard Die Fledermaus, he might have danced a little longer. This week's Tales from the Opera visits Vienna for Johann Strauss II's sparkling operetta. 
(Recording Details: Philips Classics/464 031-2 with Edita Gruberova, Kiri Te Kanawa, Richard Leech, Wolfgang Brendel, Brigitte Fassbaender (pictured), Wiener Staatsopernchor/ Wiener Philharmoniker/ André Previn)

Sunday January 5th (New Series)
It is the music we all share, from simple airs to the grandeur of opera, sacred chant to the sturdy chorus. Song is the art that touches every aspect of our lives. In A World of Song, Liz Nolan celebrates the wealth of Western vocal music.
