The opera's musical director Constantine Kitsopoulos will lead the six principals — three Mimis and three Rodolfos, who perform in rep every week at the Broadway Theatre — in singing "The First Noel."
The piano-and-voice appearance by Lisa Hopkins, Wei Huang, Ekaterina Solovyeva, Alfred Boe, Jesús Garcia and David Miller is expected about 8:30 AM (ET). Check local listings for time and channel in your area.
The troupers of the Baz Luhrmann revival of the Puccini opera sing in Italian every night, though hip, multiple-font English surtitles are provided. Their TV carol, one guesses, will be in English.
