Critics Week: The Year in Classical and Opera

Email a Friend

In the past year, the Metropolitan Opera's high tech Ring Cycle wowed, and Ted Hearne's Katrina Ballads invited a closer listen. Today, Soundcheck's Critics Week continues with a look back at the year in classical and opera with Washington Post critic, Anne Midgette. And: We take a look at the holiday tradition of Handel's "Messiah." Plus: A live performance from Depedro - the solo project from Spanish guitarist-singer-songwriter Jairo Zavala.
