Episode Info

Episode Info:

After a lifetime of not understanding opera, I decided three and a half years ago to try to transform myself into an aficionado by pledging to listening to the same 100 arias repeatedly for months, hoping that musical "osmosis" would eventually take effect and that I would start enjoying myself. The experiment succeeded beyond my wildest expectations. The story of my opera journey is contrasted with a very different one: an interview with Nicola Mills, the talented soprano and impresario of "Opera for the People", who joins us for the first of several appearances on this podcast. Excerpts from "La Traviata" by Verdi, "Barbieri di Siviglia" by Rossini, "Die Zauberflote" and "Cosi Fan Tutte" by Mozart.
