Opus 3 Artists is proud to announce that the 2013 season of PBS's award-winning series Live from Lincoln Center will feature two of its biggest stars: STEPHANIE BLYTHE and NATHAN GUNN.

First up is mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe's acclaimed show, "Stephanie Blythe: We'll Meet Again - The Songs of Kate Smith", airing on Friday, April 19 at 9 p.m. (ET). Filmed live during her appearance at Lincoln Center's American Songbook Series in February, this celebration of the life of the late, great Kate Smith has thrilled audiences and critics alike, with The New York Times declaring that "Ms. Blythe was in some ways an even better Kate Smith than Kate Smith"

On Friday, April 26 at 9 p.m. (ET) Blythe joins baritone Nathan Gunn in the New York Philharmonic Orchestra's staging of Rogers & Hammerstein's masterpiece, Carousel, filmed live during its sold-out run at Avery Fisher Hall in March. The New York Times raved “from top to bottom this is as gorgeously sung a production of this sublime 1945 Broadway musical as you are ever likely to hear.” Gunn as Billy Bigelow "brought a smoldering intensity to the role and a burnished, powerful voice, the likes of which contemporary musical theater simply does not provide enough of these days." (BroadwayWorld.com), while Blythe's Nettie Fowler " blows the audience away with her astoundingly lush voice...” (The New York Times)
