KTEP - El Paso, Texas

LA Opera

Friday at 7pm
  • Hosted by Duff Murphy

KTEP together with the WFMT Radio Network is pleased to continue the Opera Series with two performances from LA Opera’s 2017-18 season—Bizet’s Carmen, starring Ana María Martínez, and Verdi’s Nabucco, starring Plácido Domingo—along with encore broadcasts of Norma, a double bill of Pagliacci and Gianni Schicchi, and Jake Heggie’s Moby-Dick.

 In just over three decades of existence, LA Opera has become one of America’s most exciting and ambitious opera companies. Under the leadership of Plácido Domingo (Eli and Edythe Broad General Director), James Conlon (Richard Seaver Music Director) and Christopher Koelsch (Sebastian Paul and Marybelle Musco President and CEO), the company is dedicated to staging imaginative new productions, world premiere commissions and inventive presentations of the classics that preserve the foundational works while making them feel fresh and compelling.
