a stub and some miscellaneous Saturday entertainments
The Glimmerglass La Gazza Ladra production is fairly negligible, but Rachele Gilmore makes it all worthwhile. Plus it's an opportunity to hear the piece beyond the "Yeah sure we play opera" classical radio station alibi overture. Surprise! It sounds like a lot of Rossini. Not that that's a bad thing.
The Bayreuth Dutchman is live at noon ET, best audio is likely via Bucharest.
Radio Slovenia has a rebroadcast of the JDD/Grigolo/Bizic Werther from ROH at 2pm ET.
Musiq3 has a rebroadcast (audio) of Il Trionfo del tempo e del disinganno from Aix, with Devieilhe, Mingardo, Spyres, Fagioli, also at 2pm ET.
