Few operas have as dramatic an ending as Dialogues of the Carmelites, worth a trip to Boston to hear in a full production by the New England Conservatory Feb 7-10.
Dazzling singing, glorious music, and touches of Broadway spectacle as The Met’s Merry Widow comes to local screens.
We have video clips and a peek at the Met’s stunning staging of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg which will be shown Live in HD on December 13 at the Mahaiwe, Beacon and Clark.
A chance to see two very different one act operas, one old favorite and a new one that is about current issues, in Bennington.
Coming up in short order are The Met’s Live in HD Telecasts to local theaters. On the schedule are Macbeth Oct.11 , Marriage of Figaro Oct. 18 and Carmen Nov. 1. We have video previews.
“The Merry Widow” is just one of ten operas including five new productions, included in the 2014-15 season of live opera transmissions from the Metropolitan Opera.
