Adam Sandler fans know one of his characters, Opera Man who debuted in April 1992. He sang silly lines, and over the next two years appeared in Saturday Night Live newscasts, and even in a stand alone sketch. We’ll hear someone who could easily be called Opera Man in real life, not because of made up arias, but his incredible output of operas, composer Jake Heggie on today’s What’s New.

Jake Heggie is one of America’s amazing composers, writing opera, vocal, orchestral, and chamber music. He is also very well known for his collaborations with internationally renowned performers and writers.

What’s New is a production of WBAA Classical, a listener supported broadcast service of Purdue University.
