Opera and music on terrestrial TV


Recommended Posts

With the advent of Sky Arts to Freeview, I was thinking it would be a good idea to have a sister thread to the "Dance on terrestrial TV" thread, so here it is.  There's too much rock and pop on Sky Arts to make it worthwhile listing all those regularly, but if you spot anything you think may be of particular interest, do post!

I don't know if this is the above concert or not, but my TV said something about "Haitink at 90".  It's on the newly-Freeview-ised Sky Arts tomorrow at 11 am:

Bound to be worth a listen, anyway.

With a repeat at 6.55 am on Friday for anyone who missed this morning and wants to record. Plus Simon Rattle's 16 years at the Berlin Phil at 7.30 on Thursday morning and don't forget the RO's Madama Butterfly with Ermonela Jaho at 11.00 am tomorrow and 6.30 am on Wednesday plus ENO's drive-in Boheme at 8.00 pm on Wednesday.

Don't faint, but on BBC2 this Saturday, 26th September, 7.30-9.00 - Bernard Haitink, The Enigmatic Maestro.  Are they upping the fight against Sky Arts?

 

Otherwise, on the latter channel:

Saturday 26th September, 11.00 am: LSO/Rattle conducts Stravinsky ballets

Sunday 27th, 11 am: Royal Opera: Cosi Fan Tutte

 

plus: Mon/Tues morning:

midnight repeat of ENO's drive-in La Boheme

followed at 1.30 by: Pavarotti, a Voice for the Ages

I was watching Simon Schama's excellent series on the Romantics and BBC 2 announced itself as the channel of arts and culture.

The Royal Opera's Il Trovatore is on Sky Arts this Sunday at 11 am.  Any thoughts on the production?  I believe it may be a new one since the one I saw.

 

Oh, and Monday 6 am is Maria Callas: Legends of Opera.  Tuesday 6 am is I am La Scala, followed at 6.55 by another concert with Simon Rattle - Wagner and Haydn.

 

Ballet getting short shrift already, I see.
