Met Opera Expands its New ‘Live in HD’ Series
The Metropolitan Opera in NYC has announced its plans to expand its popular “Live in HD” series to 11 events for its 2008-09 season.

The Met features many of its operas in HD from its home base in Lincoln Center (both live and in encore mode) at a growing list of movie theaters throughout North America and other parts of the world.

Tickets have gone on sale for this season’s premiere HD broadcast, which is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 22, at 6:30 p.m. (EDT). Opening night includes Renée Fleming performing in acts from the operas of Richard Strauss, Giuseppe Verdi and Jules Massenet.

This will mark the Met’s third season providing HD telecasts for special on-site venues, with each year bringing more events. (The first year, in 2006-07, featured only six programs.)

The upcoming HD broadcasts will run through May 9, 2009.
