The cult of "Dudamania" lives on tonight, with a live concert web-cast at NPR Classical. The gifted young conductor Gustavo Dudamel officially begins his second season as the music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic with a concert featuring guest artist Juan Diego Florez, the man often referred to as today's top Rossini tenor. One guess as to what Mr. Florez will be singing.

Right, Rossini arias. Also there's a selection of Latin American songs and orchestral pieces, along with a few Rossini overtures for good measure. The mood should be light, bright and sparkling.

The live concert, co-hosted by KUSC's Brian Lauritzen and American Public Media's Julie Amacher, begins tonight at 10 p.m. Eastern Time, 7 p.m. Pacific Time.

Don't miss it. And please join in the live chat room to tell us your thoughts about Gustavo Dudamel, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and whatever else is on your mind. It'll open just before show time tonight.
