Sunday, May 28  We will be listening to Giuseppe Verdi's "Don Carlo". This 1970 recording features Gundula Janowitz as Elisabetta, Franco Corelli as Don Carlo, Eberhard Wächter, Nicolai Ghiaurov, and Shirley Verrett. The performance is conducted by Horst Stein.

Note that this broadcast will begin at 6:15 am.

Program Note: It's been a great year; thank you all for your support and encouragement. Time to take a break. This will be the 794th broadcast of "Sunday Morning Opera with Sandy". That's a lot of betrayals, stabbings, poisonings, and general mayhem. I'll be taking the summer off... see you in the Fall!
