Saturday Night At The Opera: November 9th at 9pm

With the Met's current revival of Die Frau Ohne Schatten on stage, tune in to this weekend's Saturday Night At The Opera for an in-depth look at what makes a Strauss soprano. We'll be exploring these roles through the lens of his harrowing masterpiece Elektra, in a rare broadcast from Vienna with Birgit Nilsson, Leonie Rysanek, and Regina Resnik. As Rysanek's birthday is next week, we'll be playing numerous archival performances from her extensive career, from Die Liebe der Danae to Salome. Stepan Atamian hosts.
