Some things turn out worse; some things turn out better. But I think it all evens out in the end. Or, if you’re lucky, the better-than-you-imagined moments far outweigh the worse.

    Before “The Tudors” or “The Other Boleyn Girl”, there was Gaetano Donizetti’s Anna Bolena. Classical WETA’s Nicole Lacroix hosts this audio preview of the bel canto masterpiece, which opens September 15 in the Kennedy Center Opera House. 

    Musical excerpts courtesy of Deutsche Grammophon. 

    After over a year of wanting to get tickets to an opera and plans always falling through, I will finally get my chance to see one later this month. So excited to see Anna Bolena at the Kennedy Center!
