Francesca Da Rimini (Episode #711H)

KQED 9: Sun, Aug 18, 2013 -- 12:00 PM

Zandonai's early 20th century melodrama "Francesca da Rimini" returns to the Met for its first revival in more than 25 years, in Piero Faggioni's opulent and realistic production. Marco Armiliato conducts Eva-Maria Westbroek in the title role of a noblewoman who is tricked into marrying the brutal Gianciotto, sung by Mark Delavan, instead of her true love Paolo, sung by Marcello Giordani. Robert Brubaker sings the wicked Malatestino, whose jealousy incites a murder.

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion.
