Changes in store for classical music listeners of the CBC
The San Francisco opera is joining the operas-in-movie-theaters trend, starting this very weekend.
Announcements for various 2008-09 seasons have been coming out. The Metropolitan Opera will be noting its 125th anniversary. Lots of special events, although their very first performance was on Oct. 22, 1883; unless I missed something, no performance is scheduled for the actual anniversary date – could plans be in the works?
What music director of a leading American orchestra, in the course of his next season, will be conducting Beethoven, Sibelius, Ligeti, and Gilbert and Sullivan? Answer here.
Thanks for the update, Rex!
