“Don Carlo” by Austin Lyric Opera LIVE on KMFA!
As the music world celebrates Verdi’s 200th birthday, at KMFA we continue our series of live broadcasts from the Austin Lyric Opera. ALO kicks off its 2013-2014 season with the composer’s epic Don Carlo…and we’ll be broadcasting live from The Long Center for the Sunday matinee performance on November 24. The curtain goes up at 3:00, but please join us at 2:50 for a short “pre-game” show.
Don Carlo is considered to be one of Verdi’s greatest operas…a story of politics, love and betrayal. The story is fictional but the characters are historical, including Princess Eboli, Don Carlos and Philip II of Spain (yes, the same king who led the Spanish Armada against the English during the reign of Elizabeth I…but that’s another story!)
ALO is excited to welcome Metropolitan Opera tenor James Valenti for his company debut in the role of Don Carlo, with Maestro Richard Buckley leading the orchestra. KMFA’s broadcast team will include hosts Dianne Donovan and Cheryl Dring, with audio engineering and production assistance from Jeffrey Blair and Sarah Addison. We will also be live tweeting from the event so follow KMFA on Twitter at @KMFAClassical.
