Met at the Movies

I normally work on Saturdays, so hear the Met Opera broacasts right from the fabulous speakers in the Classical MPR booth.

But last night, a couple of my girlfriends and I went to the Carmen encore in Eagan. It was fabulous! Not only a tremendous production - with Roberto Algana and Elina Garanca as two completly believable and three-dimensional characaters - but the up-close and personal camera-angles made for a most amazing opera experience.

Don't miss this opportunity to see the Met in HD in the theatre. The next show is this Saturday, Verdi's Simon Boccanegra.
