Met Opera Live in HD: Les Contes d’Hoffmann
1/31/2015
1:00 PM
The magnetic tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the tortured poet and unwitting adventurer of the title of Offenbach’s operatic masterpiece, in the Met’s wild, kaleidoscopic production.

Thomas Hampson portrays the shadowy Four Villains, and Yves Abel conducts the sparkling score. Lake Region Caterers will provide lunch in the lobby at noon.

On the heels of her triumphant Met performances in Eugene Onegin, soprano Anna Netrebko takes on another Tchaikovsky heroine in the first opera of this intriguing double bill, consisting of an enchanting fairy tale (Iolanta) followed by an erotic psychological thriller (Duke Bluebeard’s Castle). Netrebko stars as the beautiful blind girl who experiences love for the first time in Iolanta, while Nadja Michael is the unwitting victim of the diabolical Bluebeard, played by Mikhail Petrenko. Both operas are directed by Mariusz Trelinski, who was inspired by classic noir films of the 1940s. Iolanta also stars Piotr Beczala, and Valery Gergiev conducts both operas. Lake Region Caterers will provide lunch in the lobby at noon. Call 207-787-3327 to reserve your meal(s).

Met Opera Live in HD: Cavalleria Rusticana and Ruggero Leoncaval
4/25/2015
12:30 PM
Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium. Lake Region Caterers will provide lunch in the lobby at noon. Call 207-787-3327 to reserve your meal(s). Approximate runtime 3:30
$26-Adults, $23-Seniors, $18-Students
