CARMEN.jpg

One of the world’s best known and best loved operas will be featured on this week’s Sunday Opera (7/9 – 3:00 p.m.) when the recent Lyric Opera of Chicago’s production of Georges Bizet’s “Carmen” will air.  Anita Rachvelishvili is the Carmen, and her Don Jose is Chicago regular Brandon Jovanovich.  Also included in the cast are Eleonora Buratto as Micaela and Christian Van Horn as Escamillo.  The production’s conductor is Ainars Rubikis.  After the opera, join Michael Kownacky for more music of Bizet including his charming Symphony in C major written, and discarded, when he was seventeen and his memory piece, the wonderful Roma Suite.

Michael is program host and host of the WWFM Sunday Opera, Sundays at 3 pm, and co-host of The Dress Circle, Sundays at 7 pm.
