Capriccio airs Saturday, April 23 at 1 p.m. on Classical 91.5 and is simulcast at the above mentioned theaters. On Opening Night of the 2008–09 season, Renée Fleming dazzled audiences when she sang the final scene of Strauss’s wise and worldly meditation on art and life. Now she performs the entire work, in which the composer explores the essence of opera itself. Joseph Kaiser and Sarah Connolly also star, and Andrew Davis conducts.
