Trip to the Opera March 12, 2017

rusalka  Rusalka by Antonin Dvorak       Two weeks ago I went to see the New York Metropolitan Opera live performance of Dvorak’s opera Rusalka – live that is at the cinema.  The Met at the cinema.  What a treat.

Opera Season at the cinema continues in 2 two weeks with Mozart’s Idemeneo.  I hope to go!

  1. Wasn’t it brilliant! We saw it at the same time in the UK. If you want another thrill, get the DVD of the production when it first came out in Salzburg (2005, DVD 2006). It has Anna Netrebko, Rolando Villazon and Thomas Hampson and it is incredibly beautiful and moving.
