Saturday at 10:55 a.m. is another of Mozart's operas, brought to us via satellite.
Please look for times in your own community.
As Rebecca reminds me, it is not always the same in Victoria as it is here, in Calgary. Running time is 4 hours and 5 minutes.
Music Director James Levine makes his long-awaited return to the Met podium to conduct Mozart’s beloved opera about testing the ties of love. The cast is filled with youthful Met stars: Susanna Phillips and Isabel Leonard are the sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella, Matthew Polenzani and Rodion Pogossov are their lovers, with Danielle de Niese as the scheming Despina.
I could only find links to reviews of last year's performances. Here is one of the reviews entitled "Levine is Impressive in Return to Met" and here is utube clip of the Act 1 finale from a 2013 dress rehearsal of this opera plus one of Levine conducting the overture.
