    Great Performances [#3813B] Pavarotti: A Voice for the Ages Like Enrico Caruso before him, Luciano Pavarotti extended his presence far beyond the limits of Italian opera. Quickly establishing his trademark rich sound as the greatest male operatic voice of the 20th century, he expanded his reach to stadium concerts and pop collaborations which brought him fame beyond measure. Audiences adored his larger than life personality, childlike charm, generous figure, and happy go lucky style. This program celebrates the 50th anniversary since his career debut in Amsterdam, Vienna, Zurich and finally London where he substituted for the ailing Giuseppe di Stefano as Rodolfo in La Boheme.
    Even today, it is his powerful sound with its natural grace and brilliant color which still leads many to consider him the world's greatest voice. It is Pavarotti who brought opera to the masses and made football fans worldwide fall in love with "Nessun dorma." This program includes that hit and other beloved arias from La Boheme, Rigoletto and Aida; Neapolitan songs in arrangements by Henry Mancini including "Mamma" and "O Sole Mio"; favorite sacred songs like "Ave Maria" and "O Holy Night"; as well as popular duets with Bono, Sting and Eric Clapton.

    Washington Week [#5707] Every once in a while, an event strikes at the core of American society. The Charlottesville, Virginia protest that turned into a violent melee is one of those defining moments.
    *White nationalists gathered for the "Unite the Right" rally ostensibly to protect a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. However, over the course of two days, tiki torch-carrying participants shouted racist and anti-Semitic messages and clashed with counter-protestors. It made people question America's values. It sparked debates about racism, anti-Semitism, justice, and the power to conquer hate. It united a community in song to honor the people killed. And it tested America's leaders.
    *President Trump's initially tepid response turned into a week of equivocation about who was to blame. Business leaders bolted from White House jobs councils. Some Republicans distanced themselves from the president. But everyone was united in condemnation of the hate groups who started the violence.
    *The hatred the nation saw in Charlottesville did not begin with Charlottesville. It will not end with Charlottesville either.
    *Robert Costa will discuss what led to the violence in Charlottesville, how elected officials responded and where America goes next with:
    *Geoff Bennett of NPR
    *Shawna Thomas of VICE News
    *Michael Scherer of TIME Magazine
    *Molly Ball of The Atlantic

    Mystery of Agatha Christie with David Suchet David Suchet, TV's Poirot, has spent more of his life acting out the plots and dramas created by Agatha Christie than anyone else in the world. He now wants to embark on a journey to learn more about the woman who created him. He learns how she was born in 1890 in Torquay, England and how out of her idyllic childhood in Devon she grew to become master of the sinister world of poisons and murder. From the pastoral ideal of the British country house to the exotic mysteries of the East, her vivid construction of character and place combine to captivate readers by the millions.
    Suchet learns that it is not just Christie's novels that are shrouded in mystery. He investigates the adultery of her husband. A betrayal that led to her bizarre disappearance in 1926 when she faked her own death and convinced the nation she had succumbed to the same horrendous fate as the victims in her novels. Suchet explores the close links between Christie's extraordinary life and her work and discovers just what it is about this late Victorian woman from Torquay that allowed her to become the bestselling murder mystery writer in history - a popularity that continues up to the present.
