Special Holiday Encore Broadcast
Just in time for the holidays, the Met presents a special encore presentation of Humperdinck’s fairytale opera Hansel and Gretel. Starring Alice Coote and Christine Schäfer as the title youngsters, this 2008 Live in HD broadcast features a whimsically twisted production by Richard Jones and a new English translation perfect for audiences of all ages.
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.
