I have written before about the live New York Met opera productions which are screened at Cinema Nouveau in Rosebank and at Cedar Square in Fourways. Pucinni’s Turandot is showing at the moment. What a production. If you are in Joburg … don’t miss it. Upcoming operas include: Offenbach’s Tales of Hoffman from 15 January; Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier from 5 Feb; Carmen from 19th Feb; Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra from 12 March ; Ambrose Thomas’ Hamlet from 18 April and Rossini’s Armida from 28 May. Don’t miss these wonderful productions which also take you behind the scenes at the Met. Only one thing better and that would be to be in New York at the Met LIVE!!
