Be aware that this coming Tuesday, October 12th, Dallas’ WWR 101.1 FM will be broadcasting a taped performance of Jake Heggie’s most recent opera Moby-Dick from its world premiere run earlier this year. The production which starred Ben Heppner, was well-received (though I had some of my own reservations about it) and will be part of upcoming seasons at both San Diego and San Francisco Opera. If you’re interested in hearing it for yourself, the program will air at 8 PM Central Time (Which is 9PM on the East Coast of the US and 6PM Pacific Time in case you were wondering) and can be streamed over via the wonder of the inter-tubes here.

UPDATE: Speaking of the radio. The Los Angeles Philharmonic's season opening gala tonight will be broadcast live on NPR. (The details are here.) The program features star tenor Juan Diego Florez who will sing Rossini arias and some Spanish-language songs as well under the direction of Gustavo Dudamel. You've been warned.



Juan Diego certainly does sprightly Rossini. Maybe we'll catch him at Fiesta Cantina afterward. Mojitos!
