The Met: Live in HD presents high-definition screenings of opera performances in the Metropolitan Opera House, one of the best opera house in the world. Its dazzling productions are filmed by 14 different cameras in high definition format and transmitted to cinemas across the world.

The Metropolitan Opera, under its 16th general manager Peter Gelb, pioneered live HD movie-theater simulcasts in 2006. The Washington Post once praised the broadcasts as  “the most successful single element of Gelb’s tenure…truly visionary.”

The acclaimed performances have since graced over 2,000 venues in 70 countries, receiving rave reviews everywhere they go. Now, Hong Kong opera lovers too can enjoy these world-class “live” performances at the comfort of their local cinemas with a ticket price of HK$210, compared to a maximum ticket price of US$495 in New York.

Watching The Met: Live in HD offers the next best experience to being in the opera house itself, with wonderful close-ups and backstage interviews adding to the enjoyment. It’s a wonderful, accessible way to step into the world of opera! Many of our patrons, previously opera newbies, are now converted fans.

She is paired with mezzo-soprano Alice Coote in the trouser role of Prince Charming, Kathleen Kim as the Fairy Godmother, and Stephanie Blythe as the imperious Madame de la Haltière, as Bertrand de Billy takes on the conductor role in Laurent Pelly’s imaginative storybook production.
