Live In Cinemas -The NY Met Opera 2010-2011


Recently, I've had several conversations about the next season of  "The Met: Live in HD"  and the various cinemas participating.  So, I decided to post the schedule for the 2010–11 Season.  It is so exciting for me to know while I am watching a live opera at the AMC Cinema in Woodland Hills that my friends in Toronto and my snowbird friends in Florida are watching it at the very same time . And we can discuss it later by phone or email.  Thrilling!

Buy your tickets early.  They do sell out quickly.  Last season, I had to drive 35 miles to Valencia at 8 am (the transmission starts at 10 am Pacific, 1 pm New York) because it was the closest cinema where I could find an available ticket.
