Well Met—It’s Opry Time Again!

Met Calendar picThe Metropolitan Opera broadcast season begins December 1st.  Again this year there are seven Saturdays starting earlier than 1:00 PM.  In all cases we subtract about 15 minutes from the Met starting time for WHRB’s Prelude to the Met.  Fans of ‘grand opera’ (as it used to be called) should also remember to tune in to WHRB’s Post-Met Vocal Program following each broadcast from Lincoln Center.

Notice: WHRB’s David Elliott, long-time producer of our Met broadcasts, creator and host of the Prelude to the Met and the Post-Met Vocal Program, is seriously ill and will not be on the air this season.  WHRB’s astute Classical Department will take over in his stead.  HAH listeners will remember David from his occasional appearances on the show, and from his role as erstwhile ‘Fillbilly’.  More in a separate post. /CL
