Met Live in HD Explained

In addition to our National Theatre Live in HD performances, The Paramount is also proud to offer the Met Live in HD series.

Similar to NT Live shows, Met Live in HD performances are broadcast live from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. Past performances include Wagner’s infamous Ring cycle, the classic Tristan and Isolde, and the ever-popular Madama Butterfly. These stunning performances are broadcast right from the Met’s stage, and have been a favorite of The Paramount’s opera-loving community since the first broadcast at the Theater in 2008.

This season, we are excited to have four wonderful productions remaining, including:

La Traviata

Saturday, March 11 at 12:55PM
Sonya Yoncheva sings one of opera’s most beloved heroines, the tragic courtesan Violetta, a role in which she triumphed on the Met stage in 2015, opposite Michael Fabiano as her lover, Alfredo, and Thomas Hampson as his father, Germont. Carmen Giannattasio sings later performances of the title role opposite Atalla Ayan, with the great Plácido Domingo as Germont. Nicola Luisotti conducts.

Der Rosenkavalier

Saturday, May 13 at 12:30PM
The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian star in Strauss’s grandest opera. In his new production, Robert Carsen, the director behind the Met’s recent Falstaff, places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts the sparklingly perfect score.
