More Opera on WPT

Wisconsin Public Television is continuing its broadcasts of Great Performances at the Met through the rest of August. Unfortunately, I’m a day late to post the information for Carmen, which aired last night and featured Elina Garanca in the title role, along with Madison Opera favorite Elizabeth Caballero (our Micaela in Carmen last November, and our Violetta in La Traviata next April) as Frasquita.

However, it’s not too late to watch Placido Domingo as a baritone (!!!) in the title role of Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra next Sunday, Aug, 22, 9:30 p.m. And don’t miss the final broadcast of the summer: Ambroise Thomas’s rarely staged Hamlet on Aug. 29 at 9:30 p.m., starring Simon Keenlyside in the title role, along with a fantastic cast incluiding Marlis Petersen, Jennifer Larmore, Toby Spence, James Morris, and David Pittsinger (Mephistopheles in our May 2009 Faust).
