From Rimini with Love

Tonight the Met Opera‘s season premiere of Riccardo Zandonai‘s 1914 Francesca da Rimini will be live-streamed here.  From what I gather, this is Zandonai‘s only regularly performed opera (and barely, at that), and his music combines Italian verismo with Wagnerian orchestration; sounds like the best of both worlds!  This is the first revival of the opera at the Met since 1986!  So don’t miss out!
