Last Met HD Broadcast -- Until Next Year!

So, how many of you attended Saturday’s live Met HD broadcast of La Bohème? Raise your hands, raise your hands, so I can count. Keep ’em up, keep ’em up.

Well. The final live HD broadcast for the 2007-2008 Met season will be on Saturday, April 26 when they will present the rarely performed Donizetti opera La Fille du Régiment. Here’s a BBC Channel 4 news report on last year’s Royal Opera House staging of the same production and cast that the Met will stage later this month.

The Met began these live HD broadcasts last year, presenting 6 broadcasts. This year they presented 8 broadcasts. Next year, the 2008-2009 season will include 10 broadcasts beginning this fall sometime. Ten! Woo hoo!!
