On-Screen at Orcas Center this summer

Don’t miss the chance to experience thrilling cinematic opera performances, special interviews, and behind-the-scenes features during Orcas Center’s on-screen events from the Metropolitan Opera and National Theatre Live. Join us for these incredible performances coming in June and July:

Sunday, June 11 at 11 a.m.: Don Giovanni from The Met Opera. Tony Award–winning director of Broadway’s A View from the Bridge and West Side Story, Ivo van Hove makes a major Met debut with a new take on Mozart’s tragicomedy, re-setting the familiar tale of deceit and damnation in an abstract architectural landscape and shining a light into the dark corners of the story and its characters.

Saturday, June 17 at 12 p.m.: Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) from The Met Opera. One of opera’s most beloved works receives its first new Met staging in 19 years—a daring vision by renowned English director Simon McBurney that The Wall Street Journal declared “the best production I’ve ever witnessed of Mozart’s opera.” Nathalie Stutzmann conducts the Met Orchestra, with the pit raised to make the musicians visible to the audience and allow interaction with the cast.

Saturday, July 1 at 12 p.m.: Othello from NT Live. An extraordinary new production of Shakespeare’s most enduring tragedy, directed by Clint Dyer with a cast that includes Giles Terera (Hamilton), Rosy McEwen (The Alienist) and Paul Hilton (The Inheritance). She’s a bright, headstrong daughter of a senator; elevated by her status but stifled by its expectations. He’s refugee of slavery; having risen to the top of a white world, he finds love across racial lines has a cost.
