Incredible

Jonathan Dean does a fantastic job summarizing Seattle Opera’s productions while interspersing original recordings from their archive. His quick wit and cadence provide a wonderful listening experience. Additionally, the topics covered outside of the productions provide unique context and fascinating insight in opera.

Both short show summaries and in depth discussion

I like how this podcast has both short show summeries (15 minutes) and also in depth discussions on specific topics like voice types and composers. Also really enjoyed hearing from the Seattle Opera archives great singers from the past and current productions.
