Experience the ninth season of the Metropolitan Opera’s Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series The Met: Live in HD in select cinemas nationwide. The double bill broadcast of Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta / Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castlewill be presented live on Saturday, February 14 at 12:30 p.m. ET / 9:30 a.m. PT, followed by an Encore presentation in select cinemas on Wednesday, February 18 at 6:30 p.m. in all time zones.
On the heels of her triumphant Met performances in Eugene Onegin, soprano Anna Netrebko takes on another Tchaikovsky heroine in the first opera of this intriguing double bill, consisting of an enchanting fairy tale (Iolanta) followed by an erotic psychological thriller (Bluebeard’s Castle). Netrebko stars as the beautiful blind girl who experiences love for the first time in Iolanta, while Nadja Michael is the unwitting victim of the diabolical Bluebeard, played by Mikhail Petrenko. Both operas are directed by Mariusz Treliński, who was inspired by classic noir films of the 1940s. Iolanta also stars Piotr Beczala, and Valery Gergiev conducts both operas.
Now. How to win? Easy — find me! Here’s the when & where…
Simply find me. Not so easy, right? Well, it can be if I tell you where I’ll be and when. So here goes:
Where: DuClaw, Arundel Mills Mall. Bar area. Small space! Easy to spot!
When: 5:00pm-6:30pm, Wednesday, February 11, 2015
How: I’ll be wearing something red. Valentine’s Day week! (I’ll also be the brunette chica with glasses. The one too friendly with her stout. Yeah, that’d be me.) Come on up and say “Atomic Fangirl, I love Opera! Can I have Blackbeard passes?” or something like that. (Be nice, be polite to the other folks at the bar.) FIRST FOUR FOLKS GET PASSES TO THE VALENTINE’S DAY SHOW, THE NEXT FOUR GET ‘EM FOR THE 2/18 ENCORE. (Or if you’re early, you can choose the day you like. Do you.)
Hope to see you at DuClaw on the 11th — and good luck everyone!
