Cincinnati Opera was founded in 1920, making it the second oldest opera company in the United States. They celebrate their centennial in 2020 and are already gearing up for it with a special weekly radio feature for the 100 weeks leading up to their anniversary. During this segment on 90.9, Evans Mirageas, the Harry T. Wilks Artistic Director, spotlights some of his favorite operatic moments from the past 100 years. He includes recordings of many of the great artists who have sung with Cincinnati Opera over the years along with memories from both Music Hall performances and appearances at their first home – the Cincinnati Zoo. Tune to 90.9 or wguc.org Friday evenings just after the 6 o’clock symphony for more!
