Front Row Center - Cherubini's Medea

Welcome to the premiere of Front Row Center with host Mike Bolton. For this inaugural episode, we’ll look at Luigi Cherubini’s #Medea. A work rarely staged in the United States, but the spotlight is on this work as the #MetropolitanOpera opens its season with it in a new production starring superstar soprano #SondraRadvanovsky.

In S1E1 of Front Row Center, we’ll delve into the mythology and Medea with Classics professor Dr. Grace Ledbetter from Swarthmore College. Psychiatrist Dr. Laure Duval talks about women who commit filicide; Milan-based musicologist Dr. Carlo Lanfossi discusses Cherubini and Médée… or Medea; critic and lecturer David Shengold invokes the specter of Maria Callas on this particular opera. Enjoy the view from Front Row Center.
