Met @ the Movies is pleased to present a new production of Verdi's classic Don Carlo.

This magnificent piece will be broadcast at Regal Eastview Mall 13 (70 Eastview Mall Dr. Victor), Tinseltown Cinemark (2291 Buffalo Rd.) and Regal Henrietta Stadium 18 (525 Marketplace Dr.) on Saturday, December 11 at 12:30 p.m. For information on tickets please call the theaters directly. All operas will also air live on Classical 91.5/FM-HD 91.5. Be sure to tune in to WXXI-FM the week of the opera movie presentations for the chance to win a free pair of movie tickets.

Director Nicholas Hytner makes his Met debut with this new production of Verdi’s profound, beautiful, and most ambitious opera. Roberto Alagna leads the cast, and Ferruccio Furlanetto, Marina Poplavskaya, Anna Smirnova, and Simon Keenlyside also star. Yannick Nézet-Séguin, back after his triumphant debut leading Carmen, conducts. “I think Don Carlo is the quintessential Verdi opera,” Hytner says. “Right through this opera there is, on the one hand, an implacable expression of impending doom and, on the other hand, a succession of the most gloriously open-throated arias, the most fantastically determined music.”
