The Met presents the 2017 Summer line-up of encore screenings featuring four popular Live in HD transmissions, beginning Sunday, July 9 exclusively at Palace Cineplex in the Sovereign Centre, Liguanea. Encore presentations offer another chance to see popular operas from the award-winning series in movie theatres.

 

JULY 9: Bizet's Les Pecheurs, de Perles (The Pearl Fishers

 

In ancient times Ceylon in a pearl-diving village, a tale of love, betrayal, and sacrifice unfolds in Georges Bizet's The Pearl Fishers. The opera stars Matthew Polenzani, Mariusz Kwiecien and Diana Damrau.

 

JULY 30: Verdi's Macbeth

 

Greed, power and politics surround the plot of this classic tragedy. Zeljko Lucic stars in the title role, along with Rene Pape as Banquo, Anna Netrebko as Lady Macbeth, and Joseph Calleja as Macduff.

 

AUGUST 13: Verdi's Nabucco

 

Conducted by James Levine, a political struggle is exacerbated by a love triangle with a base of unrequited love. Fenena (Jamie Barton), the daughter of Babylonian King Nabucco (Placido Domingo), is in love with Ismaele (Russell Thomas), the nephew of the King of Jerusalem. Abigaille (Liudmyla Monastyrska), Fenena's disingenuous 'half-sister', is also in love with Ismaele.

 

AUGUST 27: Carmen

 

Bizet's classic about a Spanish gypsy named Carmen (Elina Garanca), who only lives for physicality and sultriness, manages to seduce the gullible sergeant Don Jose (Roberto Alagna) with her guile. His great fondness of Carmen comes at a high price and costs him everything he once held dear.
