After another very successful season last term, the highly-anticipated sixth season of ‘Live in HD’ by The Metropolitan Opera in New York will run exclusively at Ster-Kinekor Cinema Nouveau from November 17.
This exciting big screen offering from The Met consists of 12 transmissions, including seven brand new productions.
The season will launch with one of the world’s greatest comic opera gems, the beautiful ‘L’Elisir d’Amore’ (‘The Elixir of Love’) by Gaetano Donizetti.
As always, productions are filmed at the magnificent Metropolitan Opera House in New York, which is home to some of the most talented singers, conductors, composers, orchestra musicians, stage directors, designers, visual artists, choreographers and dancers from around the world.
Their past productions have received great acclaim and have gained recognition around the world. Now, and as it has done since Live in HD began, Cinema Nouveau continues to give audiences the exclusive opportunity to witness these spectacular, award-winning live broadcasts on the big screen right here in South Africa.
This new production of Donizetti’s comedy stars Anna Netrebko and Matthew Polenzani, is directed by Bartlett Sher and is conducted by Maurizio Benini.
