Last Chance: Outdoor Opera movies

Date & Time

September 2 | 8:00pm10:30pm

Location

30 Lincoln Center Plaza
New York, NY Manhattan

Description

Lincoln Center closes out its 11th Summer HD Festival of the Met’s Live in HD series of cinema transmissions (the schedule for the last week of August is here) with a melodramatic potboiler based on a real-life diva.  Adriana Lecouvreur by Francesco Cilea, set in 18th-century France, gets a sumptuous staging in this film, starring Anna Netrebko.

The series offers some 3,000 seats set up in front of the opera house each night, as well as additional standing room around Lincoln Center Plaza.

Here’s a sample from the opera, sung by Anna Netrebko in a different performance.
