The Metropolitan Opera is pleased to offer you the opportunity to participate in Summer Encores – a series of six past Live in HD performances at bargain prices.
The world’s most famous love story comes to operatic life with superstars Anna Netrebko and Roberto Alagna as the star-crossed young couple. Their performances brought audiences to their feet in both the opera house and in movie theaters. Gounod’s ultra-sensual interpretation of Shakespeare also features Nathan Gunn as Mercutio and Plácido Domingo on the podium.
Lower ticket prices in the summer! Tickets (available in advance): $15 adults, $13 seniors, $11 students, with $2 off for Lincoln Theatre Members. A great time for audiences of all ages and first-time opera-goers to attend.
