For lovers of the Opera, the Golden Cinema is bringing the Met to you with five shows to be shown at the theatre.
Performances will be shown via satellite, from the world famous Metropolitan Opera in New York. The shows will be shown here in Golden in High Definition. The five-show series will kick off on Oct. 29 at 10:55 a.m. with Don Giovanni. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the opera, during which there will be a special opera pre-show on the screen.
The running time for the opera will be three hours, 55 minutes during which there will be an interval.
Featured during the breaks viewers will get behind the scenes views and interviews on the screen.
