How many times have you watched an opera and wanted desperately to tell the director what you really thought about the production? Or perhaps you had a question about how the soprano managed to pull off such a glorious pianissimo high C in Act II? Well, the Canadian Opera Company is giving you that chance. On Saturday, December 4, during the CBC Radio 2 Saturday Afternoon at the Opera broadcast of Verdi’s Aida, you have the chance to do exactly that. Kind of like giving you your own, personalized, running commentary for the entire show.
I encourage opera lovers from all over the world to listen in on the internet, and contribute with their thoughts. The more ideas shared, the more fruitful the experience for everyone.
The interactive chat (or rant if you feel so obliged) will take place during the radio broadcast, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time, on December 4.
To listen online go to http://www.cbc.ca/radio2/ and click the “LISTEN” link near the top of the page. Those in Canada can listen on the radio, on CBC Radio 2, 94.1fm.
