Opera Box Score

America's talk radio show about opera. Period. Mondays at 9 pm (CT). Live on WNUR 89.3 FM Chicago and WNUR.ORG/POPUP.

Tonight, we reach into our Listener Mailbag.  Kevin Byrne, an assistant professor in Theatre Studies at the University of Arizona, (and a past guest on our show), wrote to ask: “What would be the handful of operas, from the nineteenth century to the present, that you would consider the most representative if you were tracking an evolution of the form?”  Our team gives him way too many ideas...

Plus, last month in the New York Times, Anthony Tommasini called it “the best opera recording ever”.  We’ll tell you what is, and what we think of it...

And then, it’s the Two Minute Drill.  You get all your opera headlines from the past week and our hot takes on them...
