Chicago Lyric Opera on WFMT–FM

The Chicago Lyric Opera http://www.lyricopera.org/  the first time since  their glorious 70s begun today to broadcast their summer program via the WFMT–FM on Sunday 8PM.



The broadcast are syndicated by many MF radio stations:


Not the second act of Turandot is though and here is what is coming on Summer:

Lyric Opera of Chicago opened its 2006-07 season last night with a revival of its famous staging of Puccini's Turandot designed by artist David Hockney. In the production, which has six performances through October 3 with another seven from January 13 through February 1, Andrea Gruber sings the titular princess for both runs. For the autumn run, Vladimir Galouzine sings Calaf, Hao Jiang Tian takes the role of Timur and Patricia Racette plays the slave girl Liù; in January, Johan Botha sings Timur, with Andrea Silvestrelli as Timur and Serena Farnocchia as Liù.

The coming season at Lyric Opera includes three new productions, of Gluck's Iphigénie en Tauride, Strauss's Salome, and Verdi's Il trovatore.

Most anticipated is surely the new Salome, directed by Francesca Zambello, with soprano Deborah Voigt making her much-anticipated first staged appearance in the title role. Voigt, a universally acclaimed singer of Strauss, sang Salome at a concert performance at Tanglewood in 2001, but a staged performance has been slow in coming, in part because of the singer's size. She has lost a large amount of weight since undergoing gastric-bypass surgery in June 2004.
Starring alongside Voigt will be Alan Held as Jochanaan (John the Baptist), Kim Begley as Herod and Judith Forst as Herodias. Lyric Opera music director Andrew Davis, currently recovering from vascular surgery on his leg, is expected back on the podium for the production, which runs from October 21 to November 21.

Iphigénie en Tauride, a co-production with San Francisco Opera, will be seen in Chicago for eight performances from September 29 to October 27 before moving to San Francisco in June 2007. Susan Graham will sing the title role in both cities; in Chicago, Paul Groves sings the role of Pylade and Lucas Meacham takes over the role of Oreste from Simon Keenlyside, who withdrew in August due to a back injury. Robert Carsen is the director; Louis Langrée, the music director of the Mostly Mozart Festival, will conduct in his Lyric Opera debut.

Il trovatore will star Sondra Radvanovsky as Leonora, Dolora Zajick as Azucena, Walter Fraccaro and Vincenzo La Scola sharing the role of Manrico and Mark Delavan as the Count di Luna; Bruno Bartoletti, the Lyric's artistic director emeritus, will conduct. The production, directed by David McVicar, is "Goya-inspired," according to a press release, and set in Spain. There will be 11 performances form November 4 to December 8.

The season will also include Gounod's Roméo et Juliette, with Dina Kuznetsova as Juliette and Matthew Polenzani and Massimo Giordano sharing the role of Roméo; a holiday production of Johann Strauss's Die Fledermaus with Andrea Rost, Marlis Petersen, Alice Coote and Bo Skovhus; Mozart's Così fan tutte with Erin Wall, Lauren McNeese, Eric Cutler and Nathan Gunn as the lovers and Thomas Allen and Nuccia Focile as Don Alfonso and Despina; and Poulenc's Dialogues of the Carmelites, with Isabel Bayrakdarian, Felicity Palmer, Patricia Racette, Anna Christy and Jane Irwin in Robert Carsen's production.
