Last Opera of the Season at Celebration

  Hi, on Saturday, April 14 at 12:55 p.m. at Celebration Cinema, we will see our last opera of the 2011-12 season.  Willy Decker's highly acclaimed production of La Traviata was premiered on New Year's Eve 2010 and returns for a second season with Natalie Dessay as Violetta, Matthew Polenzani as Alfredo, her lover, and Dmitri Hvorostovsky as Alfredo's father who interferes with their love.  Fabio Luisi, the new Principal Conductor, will be conducting this opera. 

  Lest you get depressed at the prospect of this being the last opera, I thought I'll have you look forward instead to the next season when we will be seeing 12 operas, 5 of which will be new productions and 2 will be Met premieres.  Since a printable or downloadable line-up was not yet available, I copied the listing from the Met's website for your perusal.  Starting times and duration will have to be added later when they become available.  But for now you can pencil in the entire season in your calendars and plan your trips around them (as some of us do!).  Enjoy the attachment.  See you Saturday.
