Enjoy the finest of NYC culture as Fathom Events brings The Metropolitan Opera’s Emmy and Peabody Award-winning series “The Met: Live in HD” to more than 650 select cinemas across the U.S.

All performances will be at 9:55 a.m. with encore performances on select Wednesdays immediately following the respective live event at 6:30 p.m. local time.

Met opera stars serve as hosts for the HD series and conduct live interviews with cast, crew members and production teams. They introduce the popular behind-the-scenes exclusive features during intermission, giving the audience an unprecedented look at what goes into the staging of an opera.

“The Met: Live in HD” will be presented at Regal El Dorado Hills Stadium 13 with IMAX, 2101 Vine St. in El Dorado Hills.

Tickets for the “The Met: Live in HD” series are available at participating theater box offices and online at FathomEvents.com.

“We are pleased to once again bring an exciting mix of operas to opera fans across the nation and around the world,” said Peter Gelb, the Met’s general manager. “This season also marks the highly-anticipated return of our music director, James Levine, who will conduct two of the season’s HD transmissions, which should delight opera fans across the globe.”

The series kicks off 2014 with Renée Fleming in one of her signature roles, the title character in Dvořák’s “Rusalka” on Feb. 8; followed by a new production of Borodin’s rarely heard epic “Prince Igor” on March 1; Jonas Kaufmann and Elīna Garanča in a new staging by Richard Eyre of Massenet’s tragic romance “Werther” on March 15; Puccini’s timeless love story “La Bohème” on April 5; the first Live in HD performance of Mozart’s “Così fan tutte” on April 26; and Rossini’s Cinderella story “La Cenerentola” on May 10 concludes the season.

“Entering its eighth season in movie theaters, the Metropolitan Opera continues to offer the world’s most beloved performances to audiences at Lincoln Center and cinemas nationwide through our award-winning The Met: Live in HD series,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “Together with the Met, Fathom Events continues to make the opera experience accessible and affordable to fans of all ages so they may sample the best of the Met’s new season in the comfort of their local movie theater.”
