The Met Opera in HD – 2010 Season

The New York Metropolitan Opera's groundbreaking series of live, high-definition performance transmissions to movie theaters around the world expands in its third season. Don't miss the chance to experience the Met live at your local cinema!

 With the extraordinary success of the last season of The Metropolitan Opera productions, cinema audiences have cried out for more. People who previously thought Nessun Dorma was a type of car are now becoming true opera converts after seeing the New York Met's Operas captured in HD on the cinema screen.

The 2010 Season will include:
THE TALES OF HOFFMANN

JANUARY 9-14, 2010
Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher (South Pacific) directs this new production, returning after the triumph of his Met Barber of Seville (seen live in HD in the 2006–07 season). Offenbach’s fictionalized take on the life and loves of the German Romantic writer E.T.A. Hoffmann is a fascinating psychological journey. Met Music Director James Levine conducts Joseph Calleja in the tour-de-force title role. The stellar star cast also includes Anna Netrebko as the tragic Antonia, Elīna Garanča as the ambiguous Nicklausse, and Alan Held as the demonic four villains.  Approximate running time 3 hours / 2 intermissions.

DER ROSENKAVALIER

JANUARY 23-28, 2010
Strauss’s comic masterpiece of love and intrigue in 18th-century Vienna stars Renée Fleming as the aristocratic Marschallin and Susan Graham in the trouser role of her young lover. Music Director James Levine conducts a cast that also includes Kristinn Sigmundsson and Thomas Allen.  Approximate running time 3 hours / 2 intermissions.

CARMEN

FEBRUARY 6-11, 2010
One of the most popular operas of all time, Carmen “is about sex, violence, and racism - and its corollary: freedom,” says Olivier Award-winning director Richard Eyre about his new production of Bizet’s drama. “It is one of the inalienably great works of art. It’s sexy, in every sense. And I think it should be shocking.” Angela Gheorghiu plays the seductive gypsy of the title in her role debut, opposite Roberto Alagna as the obsessed Don José.  Approximate running time 4 hours / 2 intermissions.

SIMON BOCCANEGRA
FEBRUARY 20-25, 2010
Four decades into a legendary Met career, tenor Plácido Domingo makes history singing the title role in Verdi’s gripping political thriller, which is written for a baritone. Adrianne Pieczonka, Marcello Giordani, and James Morris are his co-stars in this moving and tragic story of a father and his lost daughter. James Levine conducts.  Approximate running time 3 hours 40 minutes / 2 intermissions.

HAMLET

APRIL 17-22, 2010
The works of Shakespeare have inspired more operatic adaptations than any other writer’s. Simon Keenlyside and Natalie Dessay bring their extraordinary acting and singing skills to two of the Bard’s most unforgettable characters in this new production of Ambroise Thomas’s Hamlet. For the role of Ophelia, the French composer created an extended mad scene that is among the greatest in opera.  Approximate running time 3 hours 45 minutes / 1 intermission.

ARMIDA

MAY 15-20, 2010
This mythical story of a sorceress who enthralls men in her island prison has inspired operatic settings by a multitude of composers, including Gluck, Haydn, and Dvorˇák. Renée Fleming stars in the title role of Rossini’s version, opposite no fewer than six tenors. Tony Award winner Mary Zimmerman returns to direct this new production of a work she describes as “a buried treasure, a box of jewels.”  The fanciful and magical tale, Zimmerman says, “has an epic, enchanted quality and a tremendous visual element."  Approximate running time 4 hours 20 minutes / 2 intermissions.
