Ditto with above. Finding what is scheduled, for today, December 25, is very frustrating. The website is deficient!

When I went to the WQXR website during the broadcastg to find more information, there wasn't any. I only got here by searching for "Bartered."

I couldn't find the time for this particular Met broadcast. It's not on the schedule for today, it's not on this page, it's not on the home page with this particular item. Yes, I did finally find it by figuring out which Met opera page to go to, but it's very frustrating.
