Join us today from 6 AM to 6 PM for WRTI’s Annual Opera Day—a spectacular 12-hour celebration of opera hosted by WRTI’s Gregg Whiteside, Debra Lew Harder, Mark Pinto and Joe Patti.
We’ll feature arias, choruses, and ballet excerpts from your favorite operas with the main event — Puccini’s Le Villi and Suor Angelica performed by resident artists of the Academy of Vocal Arts beginning at 1 PM.
Opera Day celebrates the great variety of opera WRTI brings to you every Saturday afternoon and beyond, including live broadcasts of The Metropolitan Opera's entire Saturday matinee season; recent recorded performances from Lyric Opera of Chicago, LA Opera, San Francisco Opera, and Glimmerglass Festival — and, from our region — Opera Philadelphia, AVA, and more.
