This weekend’s “MET HD:Live” broadcast of Verdi’s “Otello” will be presented at 11 a.m. at the Bigwood 4 Cinema in Hailey on Saturday, Oct. 27, hosted by the Sun Valley Opera.
Johan Botha sings the title role opposite the acclaimed Desdemona played by star soprano Renée Fleming.
“Otello” is an opera in four acts and was Verdi’s penultimate opera. The three leading roles of the opera are among Verdi’s most demanding, both vocally and dramatically.
Attendees at the “MET HD:Live” broadcast have the advantage of feeling like they are part of the action on stage as the cameras focus on the singers along with costume and scenery details. Intermissions include backstage tours and interviews with the star performers, conductor and the production manager, giving one a great sense of what it takes to stage the opera.
The opera will last for three hours.
Sun Valley Opera and Metropolitan Theatres are the local sponsors of the “MET HD:Live” broadcasts. Tickets can be purchased at the box office in Hailey in advance or on the day of the opera. General admission tickets are $22, seniors $20 and students $18. For more information, contact Bigwood 4 Cinema at 578-0971.
