May 5, 2019

A tribute to Russian music is on the schedule for tonight’s edition of “Sunday Night at the Opera” with host Alexa Petrenko. Here’s what Alexa has to say:

“Since Tchaikovsky’s birthday is coming up on May 7, I thought we’d go all- Russian this week, and feature the great Russian soprano with the almost unbearably beautiful voice, Anna Netrebko. She sings Richard Strauss’ love songs to life (and to the soprano voice) in his “Four Last Songs”, with Daniel Barenboim and Staatskapelle Berlin, as well as some beautiful Russian songs by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff with Valery Gergiev and the Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre.”
