Soprano Ailyn Pérez joined Merrin Lazyan in the WQXR studio to chat about singing the star-crossed leading lady in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette at The Metropolitan Opera.

He Sang/She Sang is a new podcast from WQXR for the opera-curious and opera superfans who want to know what all those big voices are really singing about. The podcast follows the radio broadcast season of the Metropolitan Opera with a weekly roundtable chat that discusses the plots, characters, music, productions, social significance and great performances of that week’s opera.
