WQXR Previews Met Opera Season in The Greene Space
Tuesday, October 04, 2011
WQXR’s Naomi Lewin hosts an evening of conversation and performance with stars of the Metropolitan Opera -- including sopranos Anna Netrebko and Deborah Voigt -- on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 7 pm in the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space. The event is Webcast live on WQXR.org.
General Manager Peter Gelb will preview the 2011-2012 season. Additionally, the guests present video highlights from the Sept. 26 season-opening performance of Donizetti’s Anna Bolena featuring Netrebko, as well as footage from Wagner’s Die Walküre featuring Voigt.
The second half of the evening features live performances from three rising stars of the opera stage. Bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni, who sings Leporello in a new production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, presents his character’s famous “Catalogue Aria,” while soprano Angela Meade sings the Act II aria "Al dolce guidami" from Anna Bolena.
