A look back at Portland Opera’s production of Verdi’s Falstaff from the 2012-13 season takes up the 1 p.m. hour of this weekend’s Saturday Matinee. Before that, Bryn Terfel sings a moving version of Going Home, based on the largo from Dvorák’s New World Symphony. Also on the program are Rimsky-Korsakov’s suite from The Snow Maiden, Tatiana Troyanos singing the Habanera from Carmen, and Itzak Perlman performing a traditional Hebrew melody from his new compact disc. Host Ed Goldberg fills the airwaves with all this and more, beginning at 10 a.m. on October 19.
