Your Summer Soundtrack: Dive into Opera Every Saturday on WHRO FM

WFMT Radio Network

As the Metropolitan Opera wraps up its season, your operatic journey is far from over. This summer, immerse yourself in the enchanting world of opera every Saturday at 1 p.m. on WHRO FM 90.3, courtesy of the 2024 WFMT Radio Network Opera Series. Starting June 15, mark your calendar for a weekly rendezvous with some of Europe's finest opera houses and theaters, all from the comfort of your own home.

Picture yourself captivated by the heroic tale of "Guillaume Tell" at the Vienna State Opera, or swept away by the timeless allure of "Don Giovanni" at Opéra de Lille. Now take a flight to the Royal Opera House, in Covent Garden and prepare to immerse yourself in the tragic world of Strauss’ "Elektra". And to wrap up your summer, let’s travel to La Scala di Milano, with Verdi’s "Don Carlo", and breathe the drama and heartbreaking conflicts within the Court of King Philip II of Spain.

With this diverse lineup that includes everything from Baroque interpretations to grand operas, the WFMT Radio Network Opera Series offers a rich tapestry of musical delights to fill the summer and fall months with enchantment and excitement.

So, clear your schedule for Saturday afternoons and prepare to indulge yourself in rich melodies and stirring performances that only opera can provide. Your summer soundtrack awaits!
