The Lensic and The Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: Carmen

The Lensic and The Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: Carmen

February 2, 2019   11:00 AM

Bizet’s masterpiece of the gypsy seductress who lives by her own rules has had an impact far beyond the opera house. The opera’s melodic sweep is as irresistible as the title character herself, a force of nature who has become a defining female cultural figure. Carmen was a scandal at its premiere but soon after became a triumphal success and has remained one of the most frequently staged operas in the world.

Mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine reprises her remarkable portrayal of opera’s ultimate seductress, a triumph in her 2017 debut performances, with impassioned tenors Yonghoon Lee and Roberto Alagna as her lover, Don José. Omer Meir Wellber and Louis Langrée share conducting duties for Sir Richard Eyre’s powerful production, a Met favorite since its 2009 premiere.

Approx. runtime: 3:41 [1 Intermission]

Tickets: $22-$28 | Students: $15

Lensic Presents NT Live in HD: I'm Not Running

February 7, 2019   7:00 PM

I’m Not Running is an explosive new play by David Hare, premiering at the National Theatre and broadcast live to cinemas.

What’s involved in sacrificing your private life and your piece of mind for something more than a single issue? Does she dare?

Hare was recently described by The Washington Post as ‘the premiere political dramatist writing in English’. His other work includes Pravda and Skylight, broadcast by National Theatre Live in 2014.

The Lensic and The Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: La Fille du RĂ©giment

The Lensic and The Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: La Fille du RĂ©giment

March 2, 2019   6:00 PM

This frothy comedy mixes humor with a rush of buoyant melody and notorious vocal challenges. The story concerns a young orphan girl raised by an army regiment as their mascot and begins at the moment of her first stirrings of love. Complications (and comedy) ensue when her true identity is discovered. The action is startlingly simple and unencumbered by intricate subplots, allowing the full charm of the characters and their virtuosic music to come across in an uninhibited way.

Tenor Javier Camarena and soprano Pretty Yende team up for a feast of bel canto vocal fireworks—including the show-stopping tenor aria “Ah! Mes amis,” with its nine high Cs. Alessandro Corbelli and Maurizio Muraro trade off as the comic Sergeant Sulpice, with mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe as the outlandish Marquise of Berkenfield. Enrique Mazzola conducts. Approx. runtime: 2:55 [1 Intermission]

Tickets: $22-$28 | Students: $15
