The Rehoboth Beach Film Society will once again present “The Metropolitan Opera: Live in HD” 2021 – 22 season at the Cinema Art Theater. This award-winning series will feature live transmissions of ten spectacular productions.

Since its initial broadcast in 2006 “The Met: Live in HD” has grown exponentially with classical music lovers from around the world proving opera can have a place in their local movie theaters. It is now the largest provider of alternative cinema content in the world that reaches more than 2,000+ venues in countries across six continents.

The season begins on Mon, Oct 18 with Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov. Also screening throughout the season are: Fire Shut Up in My Bones, Eurydice, Cinderella – Holiday Production, Rigoletto, Ariadne auf Naxos, don Carlos, Turandot, Lucia di Lammermoor and Hamlet.  In addition to the opera performance, the HD series features Met opera stars conducting live interviews with cast and/or various production crew members while showing behind-the-scene features.

Two of today’s most thrilling voices share the title role of the legendary cold-hearted princess: Christine Goerke, the Met’s reigning dramatic soprano, and superstar Anna Netrebko, making her long-awaited Met role debut after providing a hair-raising preview in 2019’s New Year’s Eve Gala. Tenors Yusif Eyvazov and Yonghoon Lee trade off as the bold prince determined to win Turandot’s love, alongside sopranos Gabriella Reyes, Michelle Bradley, and Ermonela Jaho as the devoted servant Liù and bass-baritone James Morris and basses Alexander Tsymbalyuk and Ferruccio Furlanetto as the blind king Timur. Marco Armiliato conducts Puccini’s stirring score.

HAMLET (BRETT DEAN / LIBRETTO BY MATTHEW JOCELYN

View Screenings

 

Starts Jun 13, 2022. Tickets available now.

When Australian composer Brett Dean’s Hamlet had its world premiere at the Glyndebourne Festival in 2017, The Guardian declared, “New opera doesn’t often get to sound this good … Shakespeare offers a gauntlet to composers that shouldn’t always be picked up, but Dean’s Hamlet rises to the challenge.” Now, this riveting contemporary masterpiece arrives at the Met, with Neil Armfield, who directed the work’s premiere, bringing his acclaimed staging to New York. Many of the original cast members have followed, including tenor Allan Clayton in the title role. Nicholas Carter makes his Met debut conducting a remarkable ensemble, which also features soprano Brenda Rae as Ophelia, mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly as Gertrude, baritone Rod Gilfry as Claudius, and legendary bass John Tomlinson as the ghost of Hamlet’s father.
