Backstage Interviews Riccardo Zandonai’s masterpiece returns to the stage in a rare revival, the first time in more than 25 years, as Great Performances at the Met presents Francesca da Rimini on Sunday, August 18, at 1:30 p.m. (CT). Piero Faggioni’s production, which sets the action in Renaissance Italy, stars Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek (pictured) and Italian tenor Marcello Giordani as Francesca and Paolo, the star-crossed lovers whose doomed romance inspired an episode in Dante’s Inferno. Marco Armiliato conducts a cast that also includes the American baritone Mark Delavan as Gianciotto, Francesca’s brutal husband, and American tenor Robert Brubaker as the wicked Malatestino.

August Television Highlights Hugh Laurie says he consciously adopts a character when he’s acting, “but with music, I don’t know. I found it was a question of just closing my eyes and just sort of letting things come out. Acting is largely about putting on masks, and music is about removing them.” He and the Copper Bottom Band will demonstrate with the new television concert Hugh Laurie—Live on the Queen Mary. New! Sunday, August 4, 6:00 p.m. (CT) A Farm Story with Jerry Apps is a heartwarming portrait of one boy’s childhood— growing up in central Wisconsin in Waushara County—told through the author’s personal memories.

Originally only available as a bootleg, the original video footage has been restored and the sound remixed by longtime Who collaborator Jon Astley. The result is a concert film that retains a raw visual edge but features considerably improved audio. New!
