Wyoming Public Media will bring another season from The Metropolitan Opera, airing every Saturday on Classical Wyoming, starting December 7th, 2019. 

Launched in 1931, the Met's Saturday matinee broadcasts are the longest-running continuous classical radio series in American broadcast history. The 2019-2020 season marks the 89th year of live Saturday broadcasts and will again be heard over the Toll Brothers–Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network.

December 7th, 2019 - Akhnaten beginning at 11:00 a.m.

Director Phelim McDermott tackles another one of Philip Glass’s masterpieces, following the now-legendary Met staging of Satyagraha. Star countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo is the title pharaoh, the revolutionary ruler who transformed ancient Egypt, with the striking mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges in her Met debut as his wife, Nefertiti. To match the opera’s hypnotic, ritualistic music, McDermott has created an arresting vision that includes a virtuosic company of acrobats and jugglers. Karen Kamensek conducts in her Met debut.

*Note: Most programs start at 11am Mountain /1pm Eastern
