12:00 FROM THE TOP with America's finest young musicians; recorded November 17, 2018 - This week's guest host is Molly Yeh  a young chef with her own show on the Food Channel called “Girl Meets Farm.” But before she developed an interest in food, she was an extraordinary classical percussionist who appeared on From the Top over a decade ago when she was just 15-years-old. This week, she returns to introduce us to an impressive lineup of young musicians including a talented teenage bassoonist from rural Oklahoma and a 17-year-old pianist who delivers a fiery performance of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite

The 2019-20 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with Der fliegende Holländer, The Flying Dutchman, Wagner’s spellbinding tale of a legendary curse and a love that transcends death. Russian bass-baritone Evgeny Nikitin stars in the title role of the cursed sea captain doomed to sail the open seas for eternity. German soprano Anja Kampe makes her network broadcast debut as Senta, the woman who resolves to save his soul. The cast also features Franz-Josef Selig as Senta’s father Daland, Sergey Skorokhodov as her suitor Erik, David Portillo as the Steersman, and Mihoko Fujimura as Senta’s nursemaid Mary. Valery Gergiev conducts this first masterpiece by the young Wagner. The opera is being performed in a new Met production directed by François Girard.
