Set the Stage for an Operatic Holiday With Tickets to The Met: Live in HD

Porgy and Bess

Porgy & Bess will be screened at the Quick, live in HD, on Feb. 1.

Still need gifts for the opera fans on your holiday shopping list? Tickets to on-campus screenings from New York City’s Metropolitan Opera will have them singing arias of gratitude.

Immerse yourself and your favorite opera-lover in the beauty and drama of internationally acclaimed opera performances, livestreamed from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City to Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.

Each production is broadcast in high-definition video from The Met — one of the most famous concert halls in the world, bringing the best of classic and contemporary opera to the Quick.

The 2020 winter and spring seasons of The Met: Live in HD include a diverse range of performances, from William Kentridge’s new production, Wozzeck, to long-standing favorites such as Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and Puccini’s Tosca.

The Quick will also present discussions led by Fairfield University professors and distinguished community members prior to select broadcasts. Each screening can be viewed in real-time or as an encore performance later in the day.  The 2020 The Met: Live in HD schedule at the Quick includes:

Wozzeck (Berg)

Saturday, January 11, 2020 | 1 p.m. & 6 p.m. | 12:15 Pre-Talk with Jeffrey Johnson

After wowing audiences with his astounding production of Lulu in 2015, South African artist William Kentridge now focuses his extraordinary visual imagination on Berg’s other operatic masterpiece, set in an apocalyptic pre-World War I environment. 

Porgy & Bess (Gershwin)

Saturday, February 1 | 1 p.m. & 6 p.m. | 12:15 Pre-Talk with Orin Grossman

One of America’s favorite operas returns to the Met for the first time in nearly 30 years. James Robinson’s stylish production transports audiences to Catfish Row on the Charleston waterfront, vibrant with the music, dancing, emotion, and heartbreak of its inhabitants.

Agrippina (Handel)

Sunday, March 1 | 12 p.m. & 5:30 p.m. | 11:15 Pre-Talk with Jeffrey Johnson

For the first time at the Met, Agrippina features a tale of intrigue, impropriety, and abuse of power in ancient Rome. Star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato is the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina.

Tosca (Puccini)

Sunday, April 19 | 1 p.m. & 6 p.m.

Soprano Anna Netrebko, whom The New York Times hailed as “magnificent” when she made her role debut as Tosca in 2018, returns as Puccini’s explosive diva, back by popular demand. 

Maria Stuarda (Donizetti)

Thursday, May 14 | 1 p.m. & 6 p.m. | 12:15 Pre-Talk with Orin Grossman
