Live From Lincoln Center Presents 2013 Richard Tucker Gala

A “dream team of opera singers” (New York Times) will light up TV screens across the country on Friday, January 10 at 9 p.m. EST (check local listings) in the national broadcast of “Richard Tucker at 100: An Opera Celebration.”

Hosted by Audra McDonald for PBS’s Emmy Award-winning Live From Lincoln Center, the telecast captures the Richard Tucker Music Foundation’s recent gala concert at Avery Fisher Hall, which honored the legendary tenor’s centennial. Isabel Leonard, the 2013 Richard Tucker Award-winner and a rising star in the U.S. and abroad will be joined by some of the biggest names in opera:

Stephanie Blythe
Stephen Costello
Joyce DiDonato
Renée Fleming
Susan Graham
Greer Grimsley
Angela Meade
Eric Owens
Ailyn Pérez
Matthew Polenzani

On the menu? Arias and ensembles by Verdi, Rossini, Donizetti, Puccini, Offenbach and more with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and the New York Choral Society led by Maestro Riccardo Frizza.

I, for one, cannot wait. You know how much I love a good park-and-bark fest!
