We've all seen reality television, but now the Metropolitan Opera presents The Audition the ultimate in reality programming. This behind-the-scenes documentary film by Susan Froemke follows several young up-and-coming opera stars for the week leading up to the finals of the Metropolitan Opera's National Council Auditions, competing for a cash prize and the chance to sing on the Met Opera stage.

This revealing backstage look at what it takes to make it as an opera star will be presented locally at the Regal Eastview 13 and Tinseltown Theaters on April 19th at 3:00 p.m. Fans of Met @ the Movies will want to get this date on their calendars now. Tickets will go on sale to the public on March 7th, and WXXI-FM Classical 91.5 will be giving away a limited number of tickets on air - so be listening!!
