At 2 PM, Dr. Glenn Winters joins us to talk about Va Opera's production of The Mikado playing Friday night and Sunday afternoon at the Carpenter Theatre--Richmond CenterStage (information at vaopera.org or 1-866-OPERA-VA).
As a prelude to that, throughout the day I'll have music inspired by "The East" and "The Orient," both rather vague terms, and composers often had rather vague notions of what non-Western music sounded like, but the exotic has always been an attraction to Westerners.
