SATURDAY, JANUARY 4TH
From the Top, with Christopher O'Riley
This morning, it’s the Alumni Musical Maverick show, featuring performers who have appeared on the program over the past ten years, and then gone on to do adventuresome things in music. You’ll hear from a violist who hosts her own radio show in New York, an award-winning composer, a concert pianist, and more.
Saturday at the Opera
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: The Magic Flute. Julie Taymor’s fanciful production is sung in English and runs a brisk 100 minutes in this abridged holiday version for families. The winning cast includes Alek Shrader as Tamino, Eric Owens as Sarastro, and Nathan Gunn as the winsome Papageno.
A Prairie Home Companion, with Garrison Keillor
Live from San Diego, with special guests The Wailin’ Jennys and Sara Watkins. Every Saturday night, A Prairie Home Companion features comedy sketches, music, and Garrison Keillor's signature monologue, The News from Lake Wobegon.
