LISTED TIMES ARE GMT

A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. North America and Europe are 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 are one (1) hoour ahead of GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add two (2) hours (some Eastern European countries are three (3) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Standard Time (Australia is 10 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 12 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.

This timeless story of love betrayed runs the gamut of emotions from loyalty and passion to jealousy, revenge, and redemption. You’ll hear melodies ranging from the stunningly serene “Casta diva” to the frenzy of vocal fireworks that pour forth as Norma’s rage overflows. Don’t miss world-acclaimed soprano Sondra Radvanovsky in this dazzling masterwork!

Puccini's Madame Butterfly, June 24, 2017

Madama Butterfly is an opera in three acts (originally two) by Giacomo Puccini, with an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa.
It is based on the short story "Madame Butterfly" (1898) by John Luther Long and Long's version was dramatized by David Belasco as the one-act play Madame Butterfly: A Tragedy of Japan, which, after premiering in New York in 1900, moved to London, where Puccini saw it in the summer of that year.
The original version of the opera, in two acts, had its premiere on 17 February 17, 1904 at Teatro alla Scala in Milan. It was poorly received, despite such notable singers as soprano Rosina Storchio, tenor Giovanni Zenatello and baritone Giuseppe De Luca in lead roles; this was due in part to a late completion by Puccini, and thus inadequate time for rehearsals. Puccini revised the opera, splitting Act II into two (with the Humming Chorus as a bridge to what became Act III) and making other changes. Success ensued, starting with the first performance on May 28, 1904 in Brescia.
Madama Butterfly is a staple of the operatic repertoire around the world, ranked 6th by Operabase; Puccini's La bohème and Tosca rank 3rd and 5th.

Ernst Daniël: Portret van Pavol Breslik

Pavol Breslik is een Slovaakse tenor (1979). Van 2003 tot 2006 was Pavol Breslik Ensemblelid van de Berliner Staatsoper Unter den Linden. Sinds begin van het seizoen 2012/2013 is Pavol Breslik Ensemblelid van het Opernhaus Zürich. Naast operazanger is hij ook een veelgevraagd liedzanger en concertsolist. Zo was hij bijvoorbeel te horen tijdens de BBC Proms met het London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Hoogtepunten uit Die Geisterbraut van Antonín Dvorák

Die Geisterbraut (Tsjechisch Svatební košile/Bruidshemd) is een wereldlijke cantate voor solisten, gemengd koor en orkest, op. 69 van Antonín Dvorák. Dvorák componeerde deze cantate in 1883 in opdracht van het Birminghamse Musical Festival. Voor zijn werk koos Dvorák de ballade Svatební košile (letterlijk vertaald als Het Bruidshemd) van de Tsjechische dichter Karel Jaromír Erben (1811-1870). (2 hrs.)

Sunday Afternoon at the Opera: Sellars, The World Is Round, Beulah in Chicago

I like to think of the last Sunday in June as Stonewall Sunday, referring to the Stonewall Inn gay bar and the gay riot that took place in Greenwich Village on the last weekend in June, 1969. The Stonewall rebellion in New York City gave birth to the gay liberation movement nationwide and to so much of the history of the struggle for gay, lesbian, bi and trans rights that would follow. On Stonewall Sunday I endeavor to broadcast lyric theater music by gay or lesbian composers. James Sellars (1940-2017) was for decades Hartford's resident classical music composer. He was professor of composition at the University of Hartford's Hartt School of Music. And he was an openly gay man.

This Sunday I honor James Sellars' life and work by airing his opera The World Is Round (1993), based on the book by that title by the eccentric lesbian writer Gertrude Stein. Juanita Rockwell adapted the book into a libretto. Sellars' opera was recorded live in performance, April 30, 1993 at the Wadsworth Atheneum museum of art in downtown Hartford. Michael Barrett directed the Company One Orchestra, with five vocal soloists. The World Is Round was released on two compact discs in limited edition in 1998 through the private Hog River Music record label. This opera production at the Wadsworth seems to echo the now famous staged production there in 1934 of Virgil Thomson's Four Saints in Three Acts, for which Gertrude Stein herself wrote the libretto.

Beulah in Chicago (1981) is a setting of four poems by the American poet Frank O'Hara. Sellars dedicated this piece to Virgil Thomson on the occasion of his 85th birthday. The Beulah character of the title is a flapper straight out of the Chicago of the "Roaring Twenties." Sellars gives her a sequence of quasi-pop tunes to dance to. The lyrics for these tunes are declaimed by narrator John McDonough. Sellars conducts the Hartt Contemporary Players. The whimsical verse with "night club" combo-style accompaniment might remind you of William Walton's Façade.Beulah in Chicago was included in a 1998 Hog River Music CD compilation of Sellars' chamber works.
I have previously broadcast Beulah on Sunday, July 4, 1999.

James Sellars died on February 26th at the age of seventy-six. Two days later on the 28th my colleague Doug Fox passed away at age seventy-seven. Since 1983 Doug Fox had been host/producer of "Evening at the Opera" on our sister station WMNR, 91.9 FM, "Fine Arts Radio" in Monroe, Connecticut. I have been a longtime listener to Doug's Tuesday evening broadcasts. I always learned something new about our beloved genre by listening to him. A team of opera deejays (Doug's disciples, as it were) will continue to broadcast opera in Doug's longstanding timeslot. They're knowledgeable guys in their field, and I continue to learn from them also. But in my estimation they can never truly replace their mentor, and I miss hearing Doug Fox's voice on the airwaves.

My friend Rob Meehan used to socialize with James Sellars and obtained directly from the composer CD copies of The World Is Round and Beulah in Chicago. Rob preserved the Sellars recordings in his own extensive specialty collection of recorded music of the twentieth and twenty first centuries. Rob loaned to me for broadcast the CD's of both of those Sellars compositions, as well as the Pentatone compact disc release of Jennifer Higdon's Cold Mountain. Over a period of decades Rob Meehan has kept on providing me with recordings of interesting "alternative" vocal music of our time. I always try to give him credit and thanks in our WWUH Program Guide for his assistance. (3 hrs., 30 min.)

WDR 3 Oper (Starts at 1804/2:04PM): Orpheus oder Die wunderbare Beständigkeit der Liebe
Musikalisches Drama von Georg Philipp Telemann

Orasia: Dorothea Röschmann, Sopran
Orpheus: Roman Trekel, Bariton
Eurydice: Ruth Ziesak, Sopran
Ismene: Maria Cristina Kiehr, Sopran
Eurimedes: Werner Güra, Tenor
Cephisa: Isabelle Poulenard, Sopran
Pluto: Hanno Müller-Bachmann, Bariton
Ascalax: Axel Köhler, Countertenor
RIAS Kammerchor; Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Leitung: René Jacobs

An Georg Philipp Telemanns 250. Todestag senden wir sein Manifest über die Kraft der Musik, die Unsterblichkeit der Liebe und das wunderbare Zusammenwirken europäischer Vielfalt in einer preisgekrönten WDR-Aufnahme unter René Jacobs.

„Hör, hör auf die Musik, denn wo sie erklingt, da lasse dich ruhig nieder“, heißt es schon in William Shakespeares „Kaufmann von Venedig“. Als höchste Autorität in Sachen „sweet power of music“ führt er dabei den mythischen Sänger Orpheus an, dessen wunderbarer Gesang sogar die Pforten der Unterwelt geöffnet haben soll. Georg Philipp Telemanns Lesart der Orpheus-Sage ist unter all den vielen Orpheus-Opern der Musikgeschichte wohl eine der internationalsten und kurzweiligsten, vereint sie doch nicht nur die unterschiedlichsten deutschen, italienischen und französischen Kompositionsstile ihrer Zeit, sondern sie wird auch in allen drei Sprachen gesungen: das Beste und Feinste, was die europäische Oper zur Telemann-Zeit zu bieten hatte, auf engstem Raum. (2 hrs., 56 min.)

versi di Veronica Franco
testo di Paola Ponti

Veronica Franco è un melologo ispirato alla figura storica di Veronica Franco, poetessa e cortigiana nella Venezia del Cinquecento che rivendicò attraverso i suoi versi i diritti delle donne. Amata e ricercata da nobili e regnanti, fu perseguita dall’Inquisizione e assolta per l’intervento di un suo potente amante e – si dice, secondo un intreccio di storie non documentate ma attecchite nella memoria popolare con forte valore emblematico – di tutte le donne veneziane (comprese le mogli dei suoi amanti), che vedevano in lei un simbolo di emancipazione.

registrato il 10 giugno 2017. Venezia, Teatro Malibran (2 hrs., 30 min.)
