There’s a Straniera in my House

Short notice, but at 1:30 today (NY time) you can watch Bellini‘s 1828 La Straniera live streamed from Vienna’s Musikverein.  It’s actually a celebration of soprano Edita Gruberova‘s 45th anniversary of her first appearance on the operatic stage, so that’s cute, right?  Any excuse for free opera works for me I guess.  Be here at 1:30 for free opera.

Here’s a compilation of Gruberova singing some Straniera arias to get you ready.  You can apparently find full performances of La Straniera with Gruberova on YouTube, in case you miss the live stream.
