The Met: Live in HD: Gounod’s ROMEO ET JULIETTE

March 23 @ 12:55 pm - 4:50 pm

$8 – $20
A still from the Metropolitan Opera's production of "Romeo and Juliet"

Two singers at the height of their powers—radiant soprano Nadine Sierra and tenor sensation Benjamin Bernheim—come together as the star-crossed lovers in Gounod’s sumptuous Shakespeare adaptation, with Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium to conduct one of the repertoire’s most romantic scores. Bartlett Sher’s towering staging also features baritone Will Liverman and tenor Frederick Ballentine as the archrivals Mercutio and Tybalt, mezzo-soprano Samantha Hankey as the mischievous pageboy Stéphano, and bass-baritone Alfred Walker as Frère Laurent.

This transmission will take place at the Athena Cinema. Start time is 12:55pm and is estimated to end at 4:50pm.

Admission $20 (senior $18, children $8)
