Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

A few San Diego Opera events taking over the airwaves:

- On Sunday, February 8, 2009 at 7 PM (PST) our production of Tosca will air on KPBS radio at 89.5 FM, 89.1 FM (La Jolla), and 97.7 FM (Imperial Valley).

For those of you elsewhere you can stream this feed over the internet by clicking here and following the instructions onscreen.

- On Monday, February 9, 2009 at 10 AM (PST) Ferruccio "Ace of Bass" Furlanetto, Denyce Graves, and stage director Ian Campbell will be on KPBS to talk Don Quixote and opera in general. Ian and the entire cast have really brought their A-game to this production so I'm interested to hear what they have to say. See the above item for how you can listen.

- Not San Diego Opera related (yet), but exciting nonetheless, is the news that Polish tenor Piotr Beczala will replace Rolando Villazon as Edgardo in The Met: Live in HD broadcast of Lucia di Lammermoor on Saturday. Piotr makes his Company debut with us next January as Rodolfo opposite Anja Harteros in La boheme.
