The debut episode, hosted by staff dramaturg Roger Pines, presents a conversation with soprano Elizabeth Futral and tenor Joseph Calleja, who star as Violetta and Alfredo in the Frank Corsaro production of Verdi's La traviata that opens the season on September 29. The second podcast, available next week, features Mark Delavan, who plays the elder Germont.
