The Metropolitan Opera will broadcast contemporary composer Thomas Adès opera based on Shakespeare's The Tempest to local movie theaters this Saturday, November 10, beginning at 12:55 p.m.
The work had its world premiere at London's Royal Opera House in 2004 and its Met premiere this season. Interestingly, the show is being staged by Cirque du Soleil Artistic Director Robert Lepage. We weren't ginormous fans of his staging of the Ring Cycle—that 45-ton machine sort of weighed things down in the end—but The Tempest seems like it could be a much better match for his showman's style. The cool costumes were designed by Kym Barrett, who also created the memorable looks for the characters in Cirque du Soleil's Totem, now under the big tent at Atlanta's Atlantic Station. Check out a yummy New York Times slideshow of the Tempest's costumes.
Visit the Met to find a venue or to purchase tickets for the live broadcast of The Tempest.
