The Metropolitan Opera: Live in HD 2017-18

The Met’s groundbreaking series launched in 2006 and quickly established the company as the world’s leading alternative cinema content provider. More than 21 million tickets have been sold since the series’ inception, and the series currently reaches more than 2,000 movie theaters in 71 countries around the world.

“We’re replenishing our core repertoire with new productions of Così fan tutte, Norma, and Tosca, while stretching our horizons with The Exterminating Angel and Cendrillon,” said Peter Gelb, Met General Manager. “It’s a season of repertory favorites and stimulating rarities, with something for neophytes and aficionados alike.”

Among the season’s revivals are some rarely performed stagings, including Verdi’s Luisa Miller, and Rossini's Semiramide, last performed at the Met in 1993.
