WOMR Opera House

The WOMR Opera House airs each Saturday during the Metropolitan Opera off-season

The WFMT Radio Network Opera Series May 16 – November 28, 2020

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the ongoing uncertainty around the COVID-19 situation, the WFMT Radio Network will release information for the 2020 Opera Series in batches. Some operas originally scheduled in the series have been cancelled/postponed, and several others have yet to be recorded later this year. Rather than publish a schedule and revise the information mid-season, we have decided to release this first batch of 14 operas now, and will release more information in the near future as we confirm broadcasts. Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time, and please let us know if you have any questions. Please stay healthy, safe, and mindful as we all weather this together.
