#1173 By the Light of the Silvery Moon

Thursday, June 20, 1991

The moon has inspired many poets and composers and that is the focus of this episode. George Jellinek brings us the moon in opera and song through works such as Bellini's Norma, Massenet's Werther, Dvorak's Rusalka, Verdi's Aida, Puccini's Turandot, Nicolai's The Merry Wives of Windsor, Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado, Faure's Clair de lune, Tosti's La Serenata, Schubert's Romance and Schumann's Mondnacht.
