This ground breaking program was launched by the Met in 2006 to reinvigorate opera and reach out to a broader public. Opera performances are transmitted live in HD to venues around the world. Superb technology and design of the Snowy Owl Theater create an unprecedented opportunity to bring world-class opera to the Wenatchee Valley and to you!
The Met stage ignites when soprano Kristine Opolais and tenor Jonas Kaufmann join forces in Puccini’s obsessive love story. Opolais sings the title role of the country girl who transforms herself into a Parisian temptress, while Kaufmann is the dashing student who desperately woos her. Director Richard Eyre places the action in occupied France in a film noir setting. “Desperate passion” is the phrase Puccini himself used to describe the opera that confirmed his position as the preeminent Italian opera composer of his day. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads the stirring score. Run time: 3:08
