as part of Metropolitan Opera Live
Part of the Metropolitan Opera Live Series: Puccini’s bittersweet love story makes a rare Met appearance, with soprano Angel Blue starring as the French courtesan Magda, opposite tenor Jonathan Tetelman in his highly anticipated company debut as Ruggero, an idealistic young man who offers her an alternative to her life of excess. Maestro Speranza Scappucci conducts Nicolas Joël’s Art Deco–inspired staging, which transports audiences from the heart of Parisian nightlife to a dreamy vision of the French Riviera. In their Met debuts, soprano Emily Pogorelc and tenor Bekhzod Davronov complete the sterling cast as Lisette and Prunier. This live cinema transmission is part of the Met’s award-winning Live in HD series, bringing opera to movie theaters across the globe. The Starlight Room has only 46 seats; advance tickets recommended. The theatre opens at least 30 minutes, and up to 45 minutes in advance. Please arrive early in order to secure your preferred seats, especially for parties of 2 or more.
