The Metropolitan Opera on Classical KING FM

Saturday Matinee Broadcasts

Throughout the season, join us every Saturday morning on Classical KING FM for a full performance from the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center in New York City. Most broadcasts are live, most begin at 10:00am Pacific Time, and feature special commentary and exclusive intermission interviews. Launched in 1931, the Metropolitan Opera’s Saturday matinee broadcasts are the longest-running continuous classical music program in radio history.

A behemoth in its genre, the Metropolitan Opera has featured many of the greatest singers, conductors, composers, stage directors, designers, and visual artists since its founding in 1883. Classical KING FM is your home for opera on Saturdays: after the Met Opera Saturday Matinee, join us for our Saturday Night Opera broadcast at 8:00pm.
