Here’s what “Sunday Nights at the Opera” host Alexa Petrenko will feature tonight:

“This Remembrance Day weekend we remember the great American soprano Jessye Norman, who passed away at the age of 74 on September 30, 2019.   A diva in every sense,  she spoke like a queen and sang like a goddess.  With a voice was described as “a mansion of sound” , and a huge vocal and physical presence, she left opera quite early in her career and devoted her art to orchestral concerts and solo recitals, where she could better control the uncompromising excellence she demanded.”

“Sunday Nights at the Opera” airs at 9 PM on The New Classical FM.
