Live from the Met

Whether you are a true opera aficionado or only recognize a few tunes from Bugs Bunny cartoons, you can experience the sights and sounds of New York’s Metropolitan Opera right here in Austin. Live and encore performances are broadcast from the Met to participating local movie theaters with high definition screens and surround sound. The next best thing to being there! The last show of this season is an encore broadcast of Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) on May 15th.
