A Day with Puccini

Jean-François Borras

Jean-François Borras

Saturday, January 24 throughout the day

Today, WFMT focuses on all things Giacomo Puccini with a variety of offerings celebrating the work of the great Italian opera composer.

Join us at 12:00 noon for the Metropolitan Opera’s production of La Bohème, with Jean-François Borras as Rodolfo, Kristine Opolais as Mimi, Mariusz Kwiecien as Marcello and Marina Rebeka as Musetta. Riccardo Frizza conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus.  The New York Times said, “The Metropolitan Opera’s production of La Bohème, Puccini’s masterpiece of emotional manipulation, is like any institution: it transcends the people, good or bad, who move through it…and it’s teeming and colorful enough to survive any and all of them.”

Immediately following this broadcast, The Sopranos with Debbie Voigt looks at Puccini’s Women at 3:30; Larry Johnson previews Lyric Opera’s Tosca on Arias and Songs at 4:30, and WFMT’s Suzanne Nance joins Lyric dramaturg Roger Pines to host Lyric Opera of Chicago’s opening-night broadcast of Tosca at 7:15 pm, live from the Civic Opera House.
