Watch Met Opera’s broadcast live in HD Sat., Jan 31, in Harris Center Cinema.
Grinnell, Iowa - The Metropolitan Opera’s production of Jacques Offenbach's "Les Contes d'Hoffmann" will be streamed live in high-definition at 12 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 31, in Grinnell College's Harris Center Cinema, 1114 10th Ave., Grinnell.
In this wild, kaleidoscopic production, tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the title role of Hoffmann in Offenbach’s operatic masterpiece. Soprano Hibla Gerzmava sings all three heroines, each one an idealized embodiment of some aspect of Hoffmann’s desire. Thomas Hampson portrays the shadowy Four Villains, and Yves Abel conducts the score.
Jennifer Brown, associate professor of music at Grinnell College, will deliver a free introductory talk before the opera. The talk, which will illuminate the opera's historical background and discuss salient aspects of the music and drama, begins at 11:30 a.m. in the Harris Center Cinema.
Refreshments will be available for sale in the lobby of the cinema before the opera.
Tickets are available at the Pioneer Bookshop, the Grinnell College Bookstore and at the door on the day of the show. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students, children and Met Opera members.
Tickets for Grinnell College faculty, staff and students have been generously funded by the Office of the President and are available at no cost at all ticket locations. Family members not employed by the college are required to purchase tickets.
