WWFM Sunday Opera - A Gertrude Stein Double-Feature
This week's Sunday Opera (3 pm) will be taking two looks at operas with a connection to Gertrude Stein. The first is The Mother of Us All, an opera about Susan B. Anthony by Virgil Thomson with a libretto by Stein that features Mignon Dunn in the title role along with James Atherton, Philip Booth, Batyah Godfrey, and the Santa Fe Opera Chorus and Orchestra, Raymond Leppard, cond. The second is a 21st century work by Ricky Ian Gordon and Royce Vavrek titled "27" which looks at Stein's life with Alice B. Toklas in Paris, starring Stephanie Blythe and Elizabeth Futral. Michael Kownacky is your host.
