Program

Experience the ninth season of the Metropolitan Opera's Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series The Met: Live in HD in select cinemas nationwide. The double bill broadcast of Tchaikovsky's Iolanta / Bartók's Bluebeard's Castle will be presented live on Saturday, February 14 at 12:30 p.m. ET / 9:30 a.m. PT.

On the heels of her triumphant Met performances in Eugene Onegin, soprano Anna Netrebko takes on another Tchaikovsky heroine in the first opera of this intriguing double bill, consisting of an enchanting fairy tale (Iolanta) followed by an erotic psychological thriller (Bluebeard's Castle). Netrebko stars as the beautiful blind girl who experiences love for the first time in Iolanta, while Nadja Michael is the unwitting victim of the diabolical Bluebeard, played by Mikhail Petrenko. Both operas are directed by Mariusz Treli?ski, who was inspired by classic noir films of the 1940s. Iolanta also stars Piotr Beczala, and Valery Gergiev conducts both operas.

Director: Mariusz Trelinski and Valery Gergiev
Writer: Piotr Tchaïkovski and Béla Bartók
Cast: Anna Netrebko, Piotr Beczala, Alexey Markov, Elchin Azizov, Alexei Tanovitski, Nadja Michael and Mikhail Petrenko
