Speight on the Met Quiz
Speight Jenkins will join the panel of the Metropolitan Opera quiz during the Met broadcast of Puccini’s Trittico on Saturday, December 12. Jenkins, who has been a yearly participant in the quiz since 1971, is in New York City this week with members of the Young Artists Program staff conducting auditions for next season’s program.
You can tune in to the broadcast of Il Trittico starting at 9:30 a.m. (12:30 p.m. EST) on 98.1 KING FM. The trilogy of one-act operas—Il Tabarro, Suor Angelica, and Gianni Schicchi—stars Patricia Racette in all three leading soprano roles, and also features Stephanie Blythe, who will next be seen in Seattle as Dame Quickly in Falstaff. Over 3,000 listeners submit quiz questions each season, and those whose questions are used in the quiz receive a one-year subscription to Opera News. Do you have a question to suggest?
