Give in to the epic romance of opera streamed live from the Met in HD to Orcas Center. Celebrate the opening of the new season with a champagne reception and Tchaikovsky’s fateful romantic tragedy “Eugene Onegin” on Sunday, Oct. 6 at 1 p.m.
The eighth season of Live in HD, the Metropolitan Opera’s award-winning series of live transmissions to over 1,950 movie theaters in 64 countries, begins at Orcas Center with acclaimed English director Deborah Warner’s new production of ‘Eugene Onegin.”’
Anna Netrebko opens her third consecutive Met season in her company role debut as Tatiana, the naïve heroine from Pushkin’s classic novel. Mariusz Kwiecien portrays the self-confident title character, in a much-admired interpretation he has sung in many of the world’s leading opera houses, and Piotr Beczala reprises his acclaimed performance as Onegin’s friend-turned-rival, Lenski. Due to an unexpected surgical procedure, Warner was unable to travel to the Met to stage ‘Eugene Onegin,’ which is being directed here by her longtime collaborator Fiona Shaw.
Tickets are $18 for adults, $13 students, $2 off for Orcas Center members at www.orcascenter.org or by calling 376-2281 ext. 1.
