Experience World-Renowned Theatre Via Live Broadcast at the Quick

Before the curtain closes on 2018, Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts will present live transmissions of three major theatrical productions.

Each year, New York City's Metropolitan Opera and London's National Theatre showcase a selection of their internationally acclaimed productions – starring world-famous talents – on high-definition screens in theaters worldwide. Don't miss the final three productions of 2018, coming to the Quick Center this month.

The Met: Live in HD

On Tuesday, December 11 at 4 p.m., an encore performance of The Metropolitan Opera's first-ever Live in HD broadcast, Mozart’s The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte) will be followed by a special holiday dessert reception. This original groundbreaking broadcast launched the Met’s award-winning Live in HD series back in 2006. As it did then, The Magic Flute is guaranteed to once again enchant opera lovers from around the world with the whimsical humor and breathtaking puppetry of Julie Taymor’s hit production, presented in a shortened English-language version. Tickets for this Met Live broadcast of The Magic Flute are $40, $30 for Quick Members, and $10 for children and students.

A week later, on Tuesday, December 18 at 1 p.m., The Met: Live in HD will bring Verdi’s La Traviata to the Quick. Yannick Nézet-Séguin will conduct Michael Mayer’s richly textured new production, featuring a dazzling 18th-century setting that changes with the seasons. Soprano Diana Damrau will play the tragic heroine, Violetta, and tenor Juan Diego Flórez will return to the Met for the first time in five seasons to sing the role of Alfredo, Violetta’s hapless lover. Tickets for the Met Live transmission of La Traviata are $33, $28 for seniors, $23 for Quick Members, and $5 for children and students.

NT Live

National Theatre Live launched in June 2009, and has since broadcast more than 40 live stage productions from London’s National Theatre and other major venues throughout the U.K. On Wednesday, December 12 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., NT Live will present its first-ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse: the multi-award-winning The Madness of George III.

Set in 1786, the play tells the story of King George III – the most powerful man of his time – as his behavior becomes increasingly erratic and 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 king and man.

Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights, Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991. General Admission tickets for the live broadcast of Nottingham Playhouse's production of The Madness of George III are $25, $20 for Quick Members and seniors, and $10 for children and students.
