Kicking Horse Movies is getting set to present six operas this winter, with all of them featuring live feeds from The Metropolitan Opera in New York. This will be the third year that the local cinema has presented live opera and owner Stuart Angus said that the theatre’s opera presentations have grown in popularity with every show they have put on.

“At first it was slow, but it has built as the word has got out,” he said, referring to the show’s audiences. “People that come are blown away with it.”

Because the theatres in New York are so large, opera patrons generally have to use opera glasses in order to give themselves a good view of the performance. The live video feed, however, gives the audiences a great, close view that allows the viewer to see the facial expressions and nuances of the show that might be lost otherwise.

Tosca, a three act opera by Italian composer Giancarlo Puccini, will kick off the season on Saturday Nov. 9 at 11am. Tosca is an opera set in Rome in 1800 when the Kingdom of Naples was under threat from Napolean. The Met’s rendition will feature Patricia Racette in the title role of the jealous diva with Roberto Alagna as her lover, Cavaradossi. George Gagnidze is the villainous Scarpia.

Other operas that will be shown this winter include Falstaff by Verdi and Cosi Fan Tutte by Mozart. Single session tickets are $25. Passes for all six operas are available for $125.
