Opera fans don't have to live in Los Angeles to experience some of LAO’s most exciting productions. Broadcasts of our performances can be heard every summer on Classical KUSC 91.5fm, with selected performances syndicated internationally on the WFMT Radio Network.
Stay tuned for the 2020 broadcast schedule of LA Opera on Air, featuring performances recorded live at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and hosted by KUSC’s resident opera expert, Jennifer Miller. While KUSC's broadcasts ended in the early summer, here's the WFMT broadcast schedule for the autumn of 2019. (Air dates vary; check local listings for when these performances will air in your area.)
The Clemency of Titus
Rome, the most powerful capital in the ancient world, falls vulnerable to power players seeking glory. To keep his crown and save the city he loves, Emperor Titus faces the ultimate choice between mercy or murder. James Conlon conducts a performance led by Russell Thomas, one of the hottest tenors of our time. (Recorded in March 2019.)
Began airing September 28 on the WFMT Radio Network.
It might be the world’s most popular opera and it’s easy to see why. Ana María Martínez and Brandon Jovanovich star as two lovers who should never ever ever get back together and James Conlon conducts Bizet’s thrill-a-minute score. (Recorded in September 2017.)
