This is not just about singing – with The Met: Live in HD you will be transported back stage, behind the scenes, you will meet the stars and the production teams. Come experience this enthralling art form for yourself, streamed live to our Orcas Center, and enjoy this special reception while you are at the theater.
What better season opener than Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore. The great diva Anna Netrebko and Matthew Polenzani staring in Bartlett Sher’s new production of one of the greatest comic gems in opera. Netrebko is the fickle Adina and Plienzani is her besotted Nemorino. Mariusz Kwiecien (Don Giovanni) is the blustery Sergeant Belcore and Ambrogio Maestri is Dulcamara, the loveable quack and dispenser of the elixir. Maurizio Benini conducts.
