Prior to the MET Live in HD broadcast at the Taos Center for the Arts, the Taos Opera Guild will host a Preview Breakfast at Doc Martin's restaurant in the Taos Inn. After enjoying a Doc Martin's breakfast at your own expense, there will be a preview talk. The preview, delivered by Anne Stillman, is an ideal introduction to the history of the opera, the current production and provides an opportunity to ask questions. This would be the perfect primer for an opera novice, so all who are interested are encouraged to come for breakfast, the preview or both!
Soprano Anna Netrebko joins the ranks of Renata Tebaldi, Montserrat Caballé, and Renata Scotto, taking on—for the first time at the Met—the title role of the real-life French actress who dazzled 18th-century audiences with her on-and offstage passion. Sir David McVicar's staging, which sets the action in a working replica of a Baroque theater, premiered at the Royal Opera House in London, where the Guardian praised the "elegant production, sumptuously designed ... The spectacle guarantees a good night out."
Runtime is 3 hours 33 minutes including two intermissions.
