An Opera Lover’s Surrealistic Dream?

379799_10151774931807355_136073743_n

Operathon: Saturday 8:oo AM – midnight

 
How often do you get Butterfly, Otello and Parsifal in the same space? Add a pair of maestros, Desdemona and a director or two, and you have OPERATHON! Of course if one considers the roles that are in the active repertoire of all these singers, most everyone will be present and accounted for: Mistress Quickly, Marguerite, Mimì, Lohengrin, Tosca, Walther, Orfeo, Macbeth, not to mention a couple Don Giovannis, Figaros, and Alfredos etc., etc; this is a dream date for people who adore opera.

Once a year, WFMT shares the air with Lyric Opera of Chicago. All proceeds go to keeping world-class, live opera strong and vibrant in Chicago, while treating our audience to the ultimate immersion in all things opera. The broadcast begins at 8:00 AM on Saturday, and runs until midnight. Guests include Thomas Hampson, Stephanie Blythe, Johan Botha, Bertrand de Billy, Sir Andrew Davis, Ana María Martínez, and many more.
