This week’s edition of The Opera Hour looks at when poetry and opera collide. We’ll be asking the question, what happens when a composer commissions a poet to write their libretto? And we’ll be hearing some of the greatest ever librettos written by poets as diverse as William Shakespeare, Gertrude Stein, Paul Muldoon, W.H. Auden and June Jordan. Richard Scott hosts, tune in from 4:00pm.
