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.

What’s Coming in the 2011-2012 Season.

The 2011-2012 season promises to be filled with new productions, good singing…probably bad singing, and hopefully the arrival of new operatic hopefuls who can fill seats and excite non-operagoers to come to the opera house.  I’ve decided to list the seasons according to house and repertoire, as an easy reference tool for those of you wanting to attend.  I’m also going to give each opera a rating and, later, links to reviews.  Later in the season, I may also list upcoming concerts that are worthwhile and any new releases that are worth purchasing.  For those of you who love opera but would rather listen in the comfort of your own home (as much as I think the true spectacle must be witnessed in the theatre), Sirius/XM Radio is a must have. The Met Opera Radio station plays full operas, recent and great performances ALL DAY LONG!   Also, Met Opera Player isn’t so shabby at $15 per month.  Chalk full of videos and recordings of live performances of the greats and recent productions, it’s nice to sit and watch on your own computer.  If you can pull together the funds to get yourself to NYC or to Europe, the best experience is always in the house.  The true prowess of the human voice can only truly be assessed as it is enmeshed with the orchestra in a live setting.

The Last Verista’s “Pick of the Week” on Met Opera Radio for Dec. 6, 2010: Birgit Nilsson in Richard Strauss’ “Elektra”

If you have little time to listen this week, do listen to this production, conducted by James Levine, with Birgit Nilsson, Leonie Rysanek, and Mignon Dunn from 1980.
