"Spoiler Alert???" It's no secret that in grand opera, characters suffer and die, but in Puccini's "Tosca" the baritone gets stabbed, the tenor gets shot, and the soprano leaps to her death. What you might not know is that "Tosca" is the most error-prone production in history. If it CAN go wrong, it WILL go wrong in "Tosca." Nickel City Opera impresario Valerian Ruminski tells WNED's Peter Hall about some amusing mistakes over the last century. Tosca is live on stage at the Riviera Theatre on Webster Street in North Tonawanda, Friday night at 8:00pm and Sunday afternoon at 2:30.

When one musician plays a second or third instrument, it’s known as “doubling.” Most people who attend BPO concerts know Anna Mattix as an English Hornist, but this weekend at the Roycroft Chamber Music Festival Anna “doubles” on oboe! WNED’s Peter Hall found out more.
Caruso did it, Pavarotti did it, and now, for a new generation, the three young men who make up “Il Volo” are keeping alive the tradition of what is commonly known as “Neopolitan singing.” Il Volo appears Wednesday night at Kleinhans Music Hall at 8, and WNED’s Peter Hall found out more from Piero Barone.
The 2014 Roycroft Chamber Music Festival offers concerts this Saturday and Sunday at St. Matthias Church in East Aurora, Saturday night at 8 and Sunday at 7, with a special “sneak peek” concert this Friday, June 6th at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Buffalo. Many of the Roycroft performers are from the BPO, including English Hornist Anna Mattix and Violinist Megan Prokes, who each “double” on a related instrument. WNED’s Peter Hall found out more.
