Rolando Villazon’s recording “Cielo e Mar” from Ponchielli’s opera La Gioconda is featured tonight on Sunday Night at the Opera with host Alexa Peternko.
Here’s what Alexa says about the show:
“To accompany a steamy long summer weekend, superstar Mexican tenor Rolando Villazon brings his signature intensity, passion, and heavenly floated pianissimos to beloved arias by Verdi, Boito, Donizetti and Ponchielli that will transport us through a hundred years of Italian opera, and from sea to sky. Daniele Caligari conducts the Giuseppe Verdi Orchestra.”
Sunday Night at the Opera airs at 9 pm on The New Classical FM. Enjoy your day off tomorrow!
