Next Show

This week: the second of our two April broadcasts from Texas, and we'll be live from the magnificent Grand 1894 Opera House in Galveston. Singer and songwriter Stephanie Davis joins us, a fourth generation Montanan now making her home in the Lone Star State; and literary mezzo-soprano Jennifer Rivera will be on hand with a few songs right at home in the splendid Romanesque Revival hall. Plus: scripts and Texas scenes from our Royal Academy of Radio Actors, music director and pianist Rich Dworsky and the band (drummer Bernie Dresel, Larry Kohut on the bass, Richard Kriehn on the mandolin and fiddle, and guitarist Chris Siebold) accompany intricate arias and Gulf Coast melodies, and an update from the host on the latest News from a rapidly greening Lake Wobegon.

Classical MPR's broadcast of Metropolitan Opera live will briefly pre-empt the start of A Prairie Home Companion on January 5, March 2 and May 11. For the complete broadcast, join MPR News on Sunday at 11 a.m.
