Great Performances at the Met
In a historic first for any major performing arts institution in this country or abroad, the Metropolitan Opera this season will transmit 7 of its Saturday matinee performances live in high definition into movie theaters in the United States, Canada and Europe. These productions will later be broadcast on PBS.
La Donna del Lago (#909H) Duration: 2:55:46 SRND51 TVPG
Joyce DiDonato and Juan Diego Florez join forces for this Rossini showcase of bel canto virtuosity, set in the medieval Scottish highlands. DiDonato is the "lady of the lake" of the title, and Florez is the king who relentlessly pursues her, with their vocal fireworks embellishing the tragic plot. This Met premiere production is directed by Paul Curran and conducted by Michele Mariotti.
