The beloved series of Saturday afternoon Met Opera broadcasts, now entering its 83rd season, returns December 7, 2013.

Launched in 1931, the Metropolitan Opera’s Saturday matinee broadcasts are the longest-running continuous classical music program in radio history. The season begins with Verdi’s Rigoletto, starring Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Matthew Polenzani, and Sonya Yoncheva, continuing the celebration of Verdi’s 200th birthday. The month of December also includes Verdi’s Falstaff, Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Puccini’s Tosca.

The Toll Brothers–Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network will feature 23 performances, running through May 10, 2014. Margaret Juntwait returns as the series host, joined by commentator Ira Siff.

Local broadcasts are brought to you thanks to the generosity of Sarah and Ernest Butler.
