Good News for Opera Fans
I just received email this morning indicating that once again, the Metropolitan Opera will be shown on movie screens across America. Nashville residents will be able to buy tickets for live and encore performances at both Regal Geen Hills 16 and Regal Opry Mills theatres. I'm very happy to report that for the first time ever, the Met's Opening Night Gala will also be a part of the movie house experience.
On September 22nd, the Met's 125th anniversary season begins with soprano Renee Fleming performing her famous roles from the second act of La Traviata, the third act of Manon, and the final scene from Capriccio. Complete season details are at Fathom Events. Bravo to Met general manager Peter Gelb for making opera more accessible to the masses.
