Mario del Monaco Sings "Ghost Riders in the Sky", and More Crossovers on The Lyric Stage this Sunday

Jessye Norman, Dawn Upshaw and others sing some of their favorite Broadway, movie and pop songs this Sunday (8/28) at the special time of 9 pm.

This week on The Lyric Stage we have an hour of crossover songs from Broadway, the movies and pop - even one country song - performed by, Jessye Norman, Bryn Terfel, Mario del Monaco, Richard Tucker and others. Armed with the love of this kind of music and a set of arrangements, almost always special to the singers, opera singers of a certain stature record a crossover album. These performances are never less than interesting, and often, they are wonderful, if sometimes far removed from the original style of the songs.
