Aida is calling, will you answer?

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.

The people you will have the opportunity to interact with are the conductor and COC Music Director, Johannes Debus, as well as cast members Sondra Radvanovsky (Aida) and Jill Grove (Amneris).

I encourage opera lovers from all over the world to listen in online 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://music.cbc.ca 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.

The interactive chat will take place at http://www.coc.ca

Ritorna vincitor!
