LISTED TIMES ARE GMT

A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. North America and Europe are now on Daylight Time. For those of you who live in other time zones, you will need to make a calculation to derive the time of an event where you live. In North America subtract four (4) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, five (5) hours for the Central Time Zone, and six (6) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract seven (7) hours for the Pacific Time Zone and eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. UK, Ireland and Portugal one (1) hour ahead of GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add two (2) hours (some Eastern European countries are three (3) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Dalight Time (Australia is 11 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 13 hours ahead of GMT).

For those in the United States, it is useful to keep in mind that broadcasts in the evening hours often appear in the NEXT day's listings because they occur in the small hours in GMT time, which is our primary reference in the following listings.

For more information on time zone calculations, double click the time display on the lower right of your screen (if you are using a PC) to display the Time Zone tab, then click on the drop-down menu for a full list of time zones and their relationships to Greenwich Mean Time. You may also let the TIME CONVERTER do the calculations for you.

American Opera Series: “Die Walküre”– Richard Wagner
Lyric Opera of Chicago continues its thrilling journey through Wagner’s Ring cycle with Die Walküre, a riveting, devastating drama that involves complex relationships between brother and sister, husband and wife, father and daughter.

Above all, there is the great confrontation between the god Wotan and his favorite daughter, Brünnhilde – the Valkyrie of the title – who love each other deeply, yet whose relationship has been irreparably broken by her disobedience.

Conductor— Sir Andrew Davis
Director— David Pountney
Brünnhilde — Christine Goerke
Sieglinde— Elisabet Strid
Siegmund— Brandon Jovanovich
Wotan — Eric Owens
Fricka — Tanja Ariane Baumgartner

“Rigoletto”– Giuseppe Verdi
There’s no character in opera more powerfully dramatic than the court jester Rigoletto, whose acid tongue and all-consuming desire for revenge lead to catastrophe for himself and his sweet, love-struck daughter Gilda. Of all the great Verdi works, none boasts more unforgettable tunes than this one. You’ll thrill to the licentious Duke of Mantua’s “La donna è mobile” and Gilda’s stunning “Caro nome,” not to mention the most celebrated quartet in all opera. Dominating the story, though, is Rigoletto himself, one of Verdi’s greatest characterizations—a complex and tragic figure, both pitiful and ferocious, with stupendous music to match.

Conductor— Marco Armiliato
Director— E. Loren Meeker
Rigoletto —Quinn Kelsey
Gilda—Rosa Feola
Duke of Mantua— Matthew Polenzani
Sparafucile — Alexander Tsymbalyuk
Maddalena —Zanda Švēde.

Jake Heggie's opera, written in 2000 to a libretto by Terence McNally, is based on Sister Helen Prejean's best-selling memoir about her work with condemned prisoners on Death Row, and was made into an Oscar-nominated film starring Susan Sarandon. The opera centres on the relationship that developed between a convicted murderer awaiting execution, Joseph De Rocher, and the nun who fights for clemency. It's a powerful operatic exploration of the US justice system and capital punishment. Joyce DiDonato heads a magnificent ensemble of soloists in this emotional and dramatic work, which put Heggie on the map as a major force in modern opera. (2 hrs., 55 min.)

Zwei Frauen sind das Liebespaar in Händels Oper "Ariodante“: Die Titelpartie ist als Hosenrolle angelegt. Mit Sarah Conolly als Ariodante und Chen Reiss als Ginevra wird die barocke Tragikomödie zum Spiel mit wechselnden Identitäten.

Ariodante - Sarah Connolly
Ginevra - Chen Reiss
Dalinda - Hila Fahima
Polinesso - Christophe Dumaux
Lurcanio - Rainer Trost
Odoardo - Pavel Kolgatin
König von Schottland - Wilhelm Schwinghammer
Gustav Mahler Chor Wien
Les Arts Florissants
Leitung: William Christi
(Aufnahme vom 24. Februar 2018 aus der Wiener Staatsoper)

Premiere in der Wiener Staatsoper: Zum ersten Mal wird hier Georg Friedrich Händels Oper "Ariodante“ aufgeführt. Es ist die Geschichte von der Königstochter Ginevra, die Ariodante liebt, einen Gefolgsmann ihres Vaters. Das Glück der beiden könnte perfekt sein, wenn es nicht einen Bösewicht gäbe, der Ariodante an den Kragen gehen und Ginevra für sich gewinnen will. Liebe und Eifersucht, Intrige und Verrat: In Wien präsentieren die Solisten gemeinsam mit dem Gustav Mahler Chor und dem Originalklang-Ensemble "Les Arts Florissants“ ein farbenreiches Spektrum der Gefühle.

Opera: American Opera Series
“Die Walküre”– Richard Wagner
Lyric Opera of Chicago continues its thrilling journey through Wagner’s Ring cycle with Die Walküre, a riveting, devastating drama that involves complex relationships between brother and sister, husband and wife, father and daughter. The musical highlights are many: ‘Winterstürme’, Siegmund’s hymn of praise to the coming of spring and the awakening of love; the Ride of the Valkyries; the Magic Fire music. Above all, there is the great confrontation between the god Wotan and his favorite daughter, Brünnhilde – the Valkyrie of the title – who love each other deeply, yet whose relationship has been irreparably broken by her disobedience.

Conductor— Sir Andrew Davis
Director— David Pountney
Brünnhilde — Christine Goerke
