The Rehoboth Beach Film Society and the Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation will present the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD broadcast of Borodin’s Russian masterpiece, “Prince Igor” at noon, Saturday, March 1, at the Cape Henlopen High School’s theater. Note the early start time of this production. This is the sixth opera in The Metropolitan Opera: Live in HD series of live simulcast transmissions for the 2013-14 season.
Borodin’s defining Russian epic, “Prince Igor” comes to The Met for the first time in nearly 100 years. Famous for its Polovtsian dances, this new production is a brilliant psychological journey through the mind of its conflicted hero. With the founding of the Russian nation as the backdrop, star bass-baritone Ildar Abdrazakov takes on the monumental title role with Gianandrea Noseda conducting.
Admission for The Met: Live in HD broadcasts is $22 for Met members, $25 for adults, $22 for seniors (65 plus), $15 for students with ID, and $15 for children 12 and under. Seating is on a first come, first-served basis. There are no reserved seats. The doors will open at 11:30 a.m. and there will be two 30-minute intermission breaks during the live broadcast.
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is funded, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
