Jims of Wyzdom - Special Met Opera Edition

Friday, April 13, 2018

Tomorrow, April 14, the next Met in HD presentation will be "Luisa Miller" by Verdi. It is three acts with to intermissions, so bring snacks...it runs 4 hours, beginning at 12:30 PM...yes, a half hour earlier than usual. The principal stars are Sonya Yoncheva, Piotr Beczala and Placido Domingo, playing on and in Santo Loquasto's scenery and costumes and directed by Elijah Moshinsky. James Levine was to be the conductor--don't know who is replacing him. We're in 19th century England witnessing another of those operatic tragic love stories, and by the end, everyone is dead. Have a lovely spring Saturday at the opera!

The final opera this season will be Massenet's "Cendrillon" on April 28.

In Morgantown, the Met Opera HD can be seen at the Regal Morgantown Stadium 12 at 1001 Mountaineer Dr. 
In Charleston, it can been seen at Regal Nitro Stadium 12 at 12 JW Drive.
