Just a reminder for anyone who loves their opera...
The second in the 2007/2008 season of Met broadcasts is this weekend.
Saturday (12th) at 11:30am, Sunday (13th) at 1:00pm
This week's opera is Humperdinck's Hansel & Gretel
(sung, I believe, in English)
I know it is playing in many cinemas around the country but don't ask me which ones...
Here in Perth it is playing at BOTH Lunas (Leederville and Freo)
If the previous broadcast of Romeo et Juliette is anything to go by, then this really is a season not to be missed!
Upcoming brodcasts are:
Puccini's Manon Lescaut
Britten's Peter Grimes
Wagner's Tristan und Isolde
Puccini's La Boheme
Donizetti's La Fille du Regiment
I THINK Kristen and I are going to the Sunday screening in Freo... so if we see anyone there
Vibrant, edgy, and exciting, Rent is based on the glorious Puccini opera, La Boheme, a sumptuous, romantic, passionate feast for the senses set in 1840s bohemian Paris. Transported to 1980s New York, our innovative production will hark back to its artistic origins, allowing the eternal bohemian spirit that spans the ages to infect the stage with beauty and light.
