The Last Verista’s Pick of the Week on Met Opera Radio: Remembering Salvatore Licitra

This week, Met Opera Radio is offering some pretty impressive broadcasts.  I especially recommend: the 1963 Sonnambula with Sutherland, the 1957 Gioconda with Milanov, and the 1989 Aida with Domingo and Millo.  In honour and memory of the young tenor who passed away, tragically, on Sept 5th, 2011, Met Opera Radio is broadcasting a 2006 production of Licitra in Verdi’s La Forza del Destino. It is the last Verista’s Pick of the Week in honour of Mr. Licitra and his love of opera.
