Classical Discoveries Goes To Opera - with Marvin Rosen

Occasionaly when Sandy, the host of the Sunday morning opera gets a well deserved vacation, I have the opportunity to present operas
that fit into the profile of Classical Discoveries program.
I have presented a number of unusual operas from different periods and parts of the world that are not in the mainstream
