The Met: Live in HD

 

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is pleased to be a host site for The Met: Live in HD, a 10 performance season of live opera performances transmitted in high-definition video via satellite from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City to select venues in the United States and other parts of the world. The presentations include multiple viewing angles which change throughout the performance, interviews with performers before the performance and/or during intermission, and behind the scene set changes. The affordable opportunity to see world-class opera in your community is a wonderful experience for all ages. Note: The 2019-20 presentations at the Cinema Art Theater will be taped and presented about one week after the live performance until the Film Society is able to get the needed satellite equipment installed.
