Jon Vickers as Peter Grimes

Episode 5 - Prisoners of Love...and Happy Thanksgiving, Americans!

Our latest show is up. Also, all the technical problems are over! When I recorded the show, we were still having problems...as of today, we are back up at the iTunes store. Just search for us again, and subscribe that way. Also, our email address is now:

operanow@gmail.com

This week's show is a heartwarming look at the redemptive power of opera in the prison system...in my opinion, a much better alternative to being shivved in the shower (well, at least BETTER if not much better).

We also take a look at the YouTubes and all the crap you can find on it...

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and we'll see you soon with a new show...

iTunes still down

For some reason the show is not showing up in iTunes. As I mentioned yesterday I've done some back-end changes and as a result, things seem to have gotten screwed up!

We should be posting a new show up tomorrow so stop by here to get it...

iTunes feed may be down for a day or so...

I am in the process of changing things on the back end so the iTunes feed will be down later tonight...it's amazing how complicated it can be to set everything up to get one of these shows up and running!

It should be back up tomorrow...if you subscribe via iTunes, just do a new search for "OperaNow!" and resubscribe...

Look for a new show later this week. Until then, here is another example of old school American singing...from Jerome Hines...a singer who was a mainstay at the Met but never really got the attention he deserved. This is a favorite clip of my father's...I think Hines actually drives away at the end, but it's cut in this posting...

PLEASE understand...the main thrust of the site and more importantly, the show, is to comment on topics and ideas..BETWEEN shows I think that it's good to try to redirect people to great singing. YouTube and the whole culture of podcasting has made this possible. We've discussed in previous shows how important listening was to the education of a singer...this is my way of doing that.

AND...if you leave a comment, please at least leave a name...I've opened the comments up to anyone, but I do ask that you at LEAST sign it!

And for those of you who listened to our recent episode, "What's Opera, Doc?", here is a link to get OperaModa's calendar...

We spoke a few episodes about the "golden age" of American singing. This is what we meant...
