"Iphigenie en Tauride" by Gluck

New York City's Metropolitan Opera came to Eagan's Regal 16 movie theater (one of over 1,500 movie theaters in over 46 countries) on Saturday afternoon through an HD Live broadcast, the 7th of 12 season performances. Opera stars Susan Graham, Placido Domingo and Paul Groves starred in Gluck's nuanced and elegant interpretation of this primal Greek myth.
Bravo! Encore!

  1. Great idea, that is. I wish we could get those operas in a cinema here.

  2. I think we've had a similar thing here at the cinema in Winchester, it's a great idea.

  3. It is a good idea to bring these performances to other cities, though some worry that it is killing off local opera companies.
