The Met: Live in HD

The Met: Live in HD marks Its Eleventh Season with 10 Live Transmissions, including Five Operas new to the series


The series will reach 70 countries on six continents in 2016-17, as well as 750 theaters in the United States


Since its inception in 2006, the series has brought a wide selection of classical masterpieces to the big screen, presenting 87 live performances of operas—ranging from Bellini and Berlioz to Thomas Adès and Philip Glass—to an estimated 17 million opera lovers worldwide

Since its initial broadcast in 2006 to 76 movie theaters, The Met: Live in HD has grown exponentially, with classical music lovers around the world demonstrating that opera can have a place alongside Hollywood blockbusters in their local movie theaters. More than 17 million tickets have been sold over the first nine years of the series, and distribution has expanded every season to match the growing global demand for classical music on the big screen. The Met: Live in HD is now the largest provider of alternative cinema content in the world and a consistent new revenue stream for the Met, with average net profits of approximately $17 million per season in recent years.


About the Lincoln Theatre presentations:


Stassya Pacheco returns for a pre-opera lecture prior to every Saturday live transmission, 30 minutes before the start time.  Also, Saturday operas offer the option of pre-ordering your lunch from Pacioni's Market.  Pre-order lunches are made up during the opera and ready for you to enjoy during the intermission. We will also have recorded encore screenings of all performances.
Tickets: $23 adults; $21seniors; $19 students with $2 off for Lincoln Theatre Members. Discounted Season Passes available!


“The HD transmissions stimulate opera lovers, and they are a catalyst for the singers, too,” said Met General Manager Peter Gelb. “Knowing that a global audience is watching and listening, our opera stars are inspired to give their greatest performances.”
