Met Spring

Once this season of Met HD broadcasts to movie theatres wraps up, they will have shown 14 operas. PBS is showing them all this spring, one a week. Below is the list with the dates indicating during which week the opera will be shown. Operas in bold are ones for which a DVD release has not yet been announced. I'm sure the Met will release practically all of them at some point. Tristan may be the exception here since this production has already seen a DVD release (with Ben Heppner and Jane Eaglen and without the Brady Bunch plays Tetris effects). I'm looking forward to seeing these since I've only been able to get to one so far this season. The Anna Netrebko Roméo is next and soon after that is the Karita Mattila Manon Lescaut so you can be sure I'll have my Betamax fired up all spring long.
