Stop talking i want to hear the music
great if kept current
great critique and background on the operas, productions, composers and talent of the season.
its basically the same as the CD sent out to subscribers.
problem though is they stopped updating the podcast. :(
A brief but interesting introduction to various operas. Great for those new to opera or unfamiliar with particular operas. The episodes were intended as teasers for opera goers in SF a few yrs back. They are a little stingy with the music, but helpfully give a little background info on the composers & the time the pieces were written. Not for those only interested in hearing the operas music.
