Metropolitan Opera: Valentines from the Met
The Metropolitan Opera continues its 2023-24 season of Saturday matinee broadcasts – and sets the mood for Valentine’s Day – with a program of opera’s most enthralling love duets.
“Valentines from the Met” features some of the Met’s greatest stars in radio broadcasts that span more than 90 years on the air, from Lily Pons in the 1930s to Leontyne Price and Franco Corelli in the 1960s, to more recent favorites.
These captivating performances depict love at first sight, steamy seduction, death-defying passion, and everything in between, covering two centuries of music, from Handel to Gershwin.
“Valentines from the Met” will be heard over the Robert K. Johnson Foundation-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, February 10.
