The dagger in his smile

There are bad relationships and there are Bad Relationships.  The MacBeths of Shakepeare's "Scottish Play" push the boundaries of evil, to say the least. This summer bass-baritone Eric Owens made his debut as the title character of Verdi's Shakespearean opera, with Melody Moore as his scheming wife.  During the Glimmerglass Festival, we sat down to talk about twisted love, ambition, treachery, murder, and the House of Cards.

Vespers of 1610

As promised, here's a conversation about Claudio Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 with Deborah Fox of Pegasus Early Music and conductor Paul O'Dette. Why is the Vespers so extraordinary?  Why, if it's so amazing, is it rarely performed?  Why isn't it as famous as Handel's Messiah?  Paul and Deb answer these questions and touch on the raw emotional power of the work in our conversation.  I'm thrilled you'll be able to hear this on the radio, thanks to Deborah Fox and recording engineer Carl Pultz of Alembic Productions.  Hear the Vespers Monday, November 2 at 8 p.m. on Classical 91.5 and FM 90.3, streaming at  ~ Brenda
