Opera Day

Critics and opera lovers alike think that this is the TOSCA to own. It's the Metropolitan Opera broadcast from April 7, 1962, and we're bringing it to you this Saturday, November 7 from 1 to 4 pm during WRTI's Annual Opera Day celebration. Check out Opera Day details here!

The all-star cast features Leontyne Price in the title role, in an electrifying performance of one of Puccini's most beloved operas. Kurt Adler conducts.

Join us for Opera Day on WRTI! This year, the opera in the starring role is AVA's current production of L'italiana In Algeri. Blurring the line between blatant sentimentality and utter lunacy, emotions and tensions flare in Gioachino Rossini’s jovial operatic drama of an Italian beauty shipwrecked and captured by the Bey of Algiers.
