Here’s what’s coming up for this Sunday evening’s “Sunday Night at the Opera” in the words of host Alexa Petrenko:

“Well, the Rubies are coming next month, Opera Canada’s Magazine’s annual awards fundraiser, named for soprano Ruby Mercer. She was a larger-than-life personality, hugely influential in the Canadian opera world, who also founded the publication. She was all prepared to sing Verdi’s La Traviata at the Met in 1937, but a heat wave closed the theatre. In honour of Ruby, we’ll play a Traviata recording with Joan Sutherland as Violetta.”

This episode will air Sunday, September 30, at 9 PM on The New Classical FM.
