Felix Sanchez/Houston Grand Opera
Snowed in with nothing to do? Problem solved: Today at 12:30 PM EST, as winter storm Nemo gives it's final blow to New England, Marilyn Horne chats with Joyce DiDonato "about the fun of being a drama queen on stage". The interview will air on a program called Operavore on WQXR, New York's Classical Music Radio Station. Operavore streams an all-opera playlist twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week and maintains a blog on their website, as well as a weekly radio show. Opera lovers everywhere, rejoice! The legendary Marilyn Horne goes on air every week to discuss opera news stories and productions: last week she interviewed United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg to discuss the best court scenes in opera. Apparently Justice Ginsberg is a "noted opera fan who has even appeared onstage in cameo roles." Who knew?! (Law and Order on the Opera Stage)
So, if you are stuck indoors with snow piled so high you can't get out your front door, put some water in the kettle, cozy up on the couch with a blanket, your cat, and a nice cup of chai, and tune in to this fabulous program! See you there...
