Here’s what’s happening on tonight’s “Sunday Night at the Opera” with host Alexa Petrenko.
Two of the world’s top opera stars, Mexican tenor Rolando Villazon and Russian bass Ildar Abdrazakov are joined by the fantastic Canadian conductor Yannick Nezet-Seguin and the Orchestre Metropolitain de Montreal in a thrilling program of dramatic and comic duets from 19th century Italian and French operas, including two takes on the Faust legend, and some irresistible non-opera encores.
“Sunday Night at the Opera” airs at 9 pm on The New Classical FM.
