Metropolitan Opera: Verdi's Ernani

Airs Saturday, April 4, at 12 noon. The 2014-15 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with a live broadcast of Verdi’s early opera Ernani. Met Music Director James Levine conducts his first company performances of the opera in more than 30 years, with Plácido Domingo as Carlo, King of Spain – a baritone part he has added to his vast repertoire this season. Italian tenor Francesco Meli sings the title role of the bandit Ernani, opposite American soprano Angela Meade in one of her most acclaimed roles, Elvira, and Ukrainian bass Dmitry Belosselskiy is Silva, Ernani’s rival. Ernani will be heard live over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 12:00 p.m. CT on Saturday, April 4.
