Operas from the finest stages around the world

From Milan to New York, Barcelona to Chicago, WFMT gives you a front-row seat to performances from some of the world’s greatest opera companies and performers.

  • When Marie falls for a soldier from the rival camp Tyrolean Tonio, it looks as though she may have to choose between her family and true love.
  • Handel’s astonishing theatrical sensibility turned Ariosto’s epic Orlando Furioso into an operatic tour-de-force.
  • A perennial audience favorite since its 1896 premiere, La Bohème sings to the romantic in all of us. It remains one of the most beloved and most frequently performed of all operas.
  • James Conlon conducts a stellar cast—led by Liam Bonner, Richard Croft and Greer Grimsley—in a production directed by Francesca Zambello.
