The Metropolitan Opera’s Emmy and Peabody Award-winning Live in HD series returns to the big screen.
A series of four encore performances from past Live in HD seasons comes to U.S. cinemas this summer with The Met: Live in HD 2017 Summer Encore Series, from Fathom Events and the Metropolitan Opera.
The screenings will occur on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. local time throughout June and July.
This summer’s series offers the return of Bizet’s Les Pêcheurs de Perles (June 21), Verdi’s Macbeth (June 28), Verdi’s Nabucco (July 12) and Bizet’s Carmen (July 19), all captured live from the famous Met stage in New York City.
Macbeth – Wednesday, June 28 at 7:00 p.m. local time (originally transmitted live on October 11, 2014)
Star soprano Anna Netrebko delivers a searing portrayal as Lady Macbeth, the murderously cunning consort of Željko Lučić’s doomed Macbeth.
Adrian Noble’s chilling production of Verdi’s tragic Shakespearean adaptation also features Joseph Calleja as Macduff and René Pape as Banquo, with Fabio Luisi conducting.
