On Saturday, the 18th October at 6pm, audiences at Carrick Cineplex will be able to join with the packed audience in the Metropolitan Opera in New York and a global satellite audience in 64 other countries when the Metropolitan Opera continues its 2014/15 Live in HD season with a sparkling new production of a great audience favourite.
Mozart’s comic masterpiece, ‘Le Nozze di Figaro’ (The Marriage of Figaro) is one of the most frequently performed operas in the world.
The hilarious upstairs-downstairs plot of romance, lust and social status subversion is one of the two main reasons this.
The other of course is that the genius of Mozart filled it with some of the most sublimely beautiful music ever written for the human voice -this is an opera with one memorable musical gem after another.
This new production of a great opera favourite by one of the world’s greatest opera companies is a must see for all opera fans all over Ireland.
It is also a fantastic opportunity to introduce newcomers to opera – at any age.
With tickets a fraction of the cost of a ticket in the Met, there are great value ticket prices for families, and half-price children’s tickets at most venues too!
