The Metropolitan Opera Live in HD
Opera in comfy seats, with popcorn. Opera in a place where, when things get snoozy (and they will), you can head out into the lobby for a break. Opera that's a lot cheaper than seeing it live and brings you closer to the stage. (Not that you shouldn't go to see live opera. Of course you should.)
My theater of choice: the Kerasotes Showplace ICON at West End in St. Louis Park.
Coming up in 2011-12: Don Giovanni, Faust, Gotterdammerung, La Traviata, and more.
Go here to view the complete season and plan ahead.
If you missed last season's shows, six performances will be screened again this summer including Madama Butterfly and Tosca. Wish they were also showing Nixon in China.
