LISTED TIMES ARE GMT

A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. North America is now on Daylight Time. For those of you who live in other time zones, you will need to make a calculation to derive the time of an event where you live. In North America subtract four (4) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, five (5) hours for the Central Time Zone, and six (6) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract seven (7) hours for the Pacific Time Zone and eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. UK, Ireland and Portugal coincide exactly with GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add one (1) hour (some Eastern European countries are two (2) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Eastern Daylight Time (Australia is 11 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 13 hours ahead of GMT).

For those in the United States, it is useful to keep in mind that broadcasts in the evening hours often appear in the NEXT day's listings because they occur in the small hours in GMT time, which is our primary reference in the following listings.

For more information on time zone calculations, double click the time display on the lower right of your screen (if you are using a PC) to display the Time Zone tab, then click on the drop-down menu for a full list of time zones and their relationships to Greenwich Mean Time. You may also let the TIME CONVERTER do the calculations for you.

Opera on 3: Glyndebourne Greats: Hansel and Gretel by Humperdinck

The first in a short season of great performances recorded at the Glyndebourne Opera Festival in the last couple of decades. Starting with the greatest children's opera of them all, and one that can bring a tear to the eyes of the most hardened adult. Based on the Grimm's fairy tale about two children sent into the dark forest by their scolding mother for knocking over a jar of milk. And there they are seduced by the delicious candies and treats stuck to the gingerbread cottage of an old Witch called Rosina Tastymuzzle. When she finds them nibbling at the sweets on her house she entraps them to fatten them up until they are just juicy and plump enough to eat. Of course, as in all the best fairy tales good triumphs over evil in the end - but not before we've shivered and shuddered at the great Jungian archetype of the devouring mother.

Robin Ticciati leads a cast that includes the mezzo Alice Coote as Hansel and the tenor Wolfgang Ablinger-Sperrhacke as a terrifying, gender-bending Witch.

Presented by Martin Handley

Hansel…..Alice Coote (Mezzo-soprano)
Gretel…..Lydia Teuscher (Soprano)

Opernbühne: Bellinis "Norma" aus Hamburg
Eine der anspruchsvollsten Partien des Opernrepertoires hat die Titelfigur in Vincenzo Bellinis "Norma" zu bewältigen. Marina Rebeka zeigt sich der Rolle ebenso energiegeladen wie einfühlsam gewachsen.

Pollione - Marcelo Puente
Oroveso - Liang Li
Norma - Marina Rebeka
Adalgisa - Diana Haller
Clotilde - Gabriele Rossmanith
Flavio - Dongwon Kang
Chor und Orchester der Staatsoper Hamburg
Leitung: Matteo Beltrami

Bellini: Norma
(Aufnahme vom 8. März 2020 aus der Hamburgischen Staatsoper)

Es gilt als eines der Schlüsselwerke des Belcanto: "Norma", das Drama einer Liebe von Vincenzo Bellini. Grundlage der Oper ist der hoch komplexe und psychologisch einfühlsame Text von Felice Romani: ein gefragter Librettist zu seiner Zeit, der auch für Rossini und Verdi geschrieben hat. Die berühmte Arie "Casta Diva", ein Gebet der Oberpriesterin Norma an die Mondgöttin, gilt als eine der schönsten Arien überhaupt. Lange hatte es Bellinis Oper nicht leicht, denn die heikle Koloraturen-Partie der Titelfigur schreckte selbst die besten Sopranistinnen ab. Erst Maria Callas gab ihr einen festen Platz im Repertoire. (2 hrs., 56 min.)
