Airs Saturday, December 23, 2017, at 12 noon. The 2017-18 Metropolitan Opera radio broadcast season continues with a live broadcast of Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro).

Airs Wednesday, March 19 at 11 a.m. Early-music specialist Harry Bicket returns to Carnegie Hall with The English Concert for the next installment in their Handel project—the rarely heard oratorio Theodora. Featuring some of the composer’s most glorious music, this tragic work depicts the self-sacrificial love between a Christian virgin and a Roman imperial bodyguard, sung here by vocal greats Dorothea Röschmann and David Daniels. This deeply moving oratorio serves as a timeless parable of spiritual resistance to tyranny and an indictment of persecution, topics that still resonate with audiences today.
