PBS' Great Performances New Year's Broadcast

Recommended Posts

At a time when the sense of change is so palpable, I got this bittersweet notice from Ch. 13:

You can start the new year off with the sound of music, Julie Andrews style in the 25th annual New Years Day Great Performances presentation of the Vienna Philharmonic. Andrews takes over from perennial host Walter Cronkite who will spend the holiday with his family. That’ll be on January 1st, 2009 right here on Thirteen.

. . .

Plus Great Performances will feature a new production of Cyrano de Bergerac as well as Salome and we’ll be featuring the 2nd Annual Met Opera New Year’s Eve Bash showing six encore broadcasts of operas from 2008’s Great Performances at the Met including Macbeth, Peter Grimes and Hansel and Gretel.

Happy New Year to the Cronkite family.
