WXXI continues to bring listeners the finest in opera throughout the year. As the Met Opera season comes to end, the Los Angeles Opera will take its place, airing Saturdays at 1 p.m., beginning June 27 on Classical 91.5/HD91.5-1.
In just over two decades of existence, the Los Angeles Opera has become the United States’ fourth largest opera company. Under the leadership of General Director Placido Domingo and Music Director James Conlon, the company strives to make opera accessible to all, through programs such as its In-School Opera Program, a revolutionary program that brings company members into LA’s schools to assist in productions and educate about opera. Eight operas make up this summertime series.
