Tears on Toast
It’s the morning radio segment that leaves Australian opera-lovers spluttering over their cereal – Emma Ayres’ hilarious Tears on Toast, where the popular Classic FM breakfast presenter ‘explains’ exactly what the onstage antics of stratospheric sopranos and tight-trousered tenors are all about!
Now for the first time, ABC Classics has collected some of the highlights from Ivan Lloyd’s inspired programming for the ABC radio segment, in a CD that will keep the breakfast pleasure going all day long. Featuring stellar performances from singing superstars, and with Emma’s uniquely eccentric liner notes, this is opera at its most offbeat.
Featuring Joan Sutherland, Cheryl Barker, Emma Matthews, Danielle de Niese, Cecilia Bartoli, Anna Netrebko, Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo, Bryn Terfel and other opera greats.
