Live via satellite from NYC's Metropolitan Opera ... Soprano Diana Damrau plays the tragic heroine, Violetta, in Giuseppe Verdi's beloved La Traviata.  Tenor Juan Diego Flórez returns to the Met for the first time in five seasons to sing the role of Alfredo, Violetta’s hapless lover. The title role of the “fallen woman” has captured the imaginations of audiences and performers alike with its inexhaustible vocal and dramatic possibilities - and challenges.  Violetta is considered a pinnacle of the soprano repertoire.

 

  

 

National Theatre Live: The Madness of George III

January 10, at 7:00pm

It's 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world.  But his behavior is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy.  With the King's mind unraveling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.  Written by one of Britain's best-loved playwrights, Alan Bennett, this epic play was adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.
