  • Now!… Post Metropolitan Opera Broadcast Vocal Program with David Elliott 3:45-6pm time approximate https://www.whrb.org/programming/program-guide

    • I swore off Mr. Elliot many years ago. He talks at length when my interest is in his historic recordings, not his ramblings; and in presenting excerpts from the opera we’ve just heard he often assures us that what he’s presenting is incomparably better than anything we’ve just heard broadcast from the MET. I just found him tiresome.

  • Clicking for comments on the Diana Damrau recital item does not lead to comments but to advertisements for the event. Her Boston appearance with this program was scheduled for today but has been canceled due to “severe bronchitis.” Ticket holders are offered one of three options: a refund; a guaranteed ticket should the recital be rescheduled; a ticket to any other event in the Celebrity Series they wish to attend.
