Opera lovers, rejoice! If you can't make it to New York to see a performance at the Metropolitan Opera, the next best thing to being there is to see one of its Saturday matinees broadcast on PBS. Originally aired as part of its "Great Performances" series, the programs got their own title in 2006. With operatic standards like "Aida," "The Barber of Seville" and "Turandot," and performances by some of opera's biggest names, including Reneé Flemming, Placido Domingo and Anna Netrebko, the series brings the best of modern opera into American homes.
