It's time once again for the insights and selections of our favorite musical cross-pollinator. This month, VPR's Reuben Jackson takes us through the world of contemporary American opera.
October features an interview with Peter Stopschinski, whose Bum Phillips: An All American Opera recently premiered in Houston, where Phillips was coach of the Houston Oilers. We'll also hear jazz-tinged versions of works by Samuel Barber, Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov, and others.
Broadcast Monday, October 26th at 8 p.m.
