Today's Zen event: Opera alfresco
Mon Aug 31 2009
Anyone who's enjoyed the Metropolitan Opera's real-time Live in HD series—in which movie theaters screen live operas as they're performed—will be pleased to hear that highlights from the popular series will be broadcast every day this week over at Lincoln Center Plaza (W 64th St at Broadway; 212-362-6000, metoperafamily.org). These ones won't be live, so consider them more like SNL reruns, but without the commercial breaks. Selections include, among others, Romo et Juliette, Madama Butterfly, Peter Grimes, and tonight's Eugene Onegin by Tchaikovsky at 7:45pm. The summer ain't over til the telecast lady sings.
