From Gisella Moffitt:
Hi, December is upon us which means we will be gifted not with just one opera from the MET, but THREE on consecutive Saturdays!
On Saturday, Dec. 1 at 12:55 p.m. we will see Mozart's last opera "La Clemenza di Tito" (running time approximately 195 minutes with one intermission). It is a highly dramatic story full of intrigue and jealousy, but also of forgiveness and mercy. It stars Guiseppe Filianoti (Tito), Elina Garanca in a trouser role (Sesto), Kate Lindsey (Annio), Barbara Frittoli (Vitelia) and Lucy Crow (Servilia) and is conducted by Harry Bicket. The reviews have been quite good.
Dec. 8 we will see "Un Ballo in Maschera" by Verdi and on Dec. 15 we will be able to see again THE grand opera "Aida" with a different, but equally spectacular cast than last year. We are truly blessed to be able to see such performances right here in Mt. Pleasant! Gisela
P.S. If you are writing checks to your favorite charities before the end of the year, don't forget to send some money to the MET. You can dedicate it to the HD transmissions. Thanks.=
