Those of you who haven’t had the chance to hear the “Oper” section of La Cieca’s podcast of Ariadne auf Naxos should take the time today; starting tonight a new opera will be programmed on the free player. (Both parts of the Ariadne, as well as last week’s Macbeth, will remain available for downloading via iTunes and other podcatching software.) Starting tonight, we’ll hear a favorite “Podcasta Diva” — Montserrat Caballe, that is, in a live performance of Norma with the La Scala company on tour in Moscow, 1974. La Cieca will of course inform you the moment the new show is available!
