Just a quick post to point out that if you can imagine nothing more fabulous than listening to Don Giovanni all day long, today's your day!  You have the Met's, at noon ET, with

Conductor: Andrew Davis
Donna Anna: Marina Rebeka
Donna Elvira: Ellie Dehn
Zerlina: Isabel Leonard
Don Ottavio: Matthew Polenzani
Don Giovanni: Gerald Finley
Leporello: Bryn Terfel
Masetto: Shenyang
The Commendatore: James Morris

and then, barring Met technical calamity, a reasonable supper break,

and then at 6pm(-ish) ET via NPR World of Opera, La Scala's season opener DG, with

Daniel Barenboim, conductor
Peter Mattei (Don Giovanni); Anna Netrebko (Donna Anna); Barbara Frittoli (Donna Elvira); Bryn Terfel (Leporello); Giuseppe Filianoti (Don Ottavio); Anna Prohaska (Zerlina); Stefan Kocan (Masetto); Kwangchul Youn (Commendatore)

Thank you,


  1. ... and if you would like to listen to The Met non-stop for the next 5 days ..

  2. Ah! that's a policy change, isn't it? Good to know, thanks!

  3. Not a policy change as such. The decisions seem fairly arbitrary - some get aired, some don't with no pattern emerging.
