DENVER, Oct. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time since February 2020, live opera from the Met stage returns to cinemas this Saturday with the new season of The Met: Live in HD, the Metropolitan Opera's Peabody and Emmy Award–winning series of opera transmissions to movie theaters worldwide. On Saturday, October 9, German bass René Pape reprises his acclaimed portrayal of the title role of Mussorgsky's Russian historical drama Boris Godunov, which is presented for the first time at the Met in its original 1869 version. Running just over two hours and presented without intermission, Stephen Wadsworth's production is riveting and cinematic, brilliantly capturing Boris's inner turmoil and the hope and suffering of the oppressed Russian people. Maestro Sebastian Weigle takes the podium to lead an outstanding ensemble cast, and soprano Angel Blue hosts the transmission.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. A complete list of theater locations is available on the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
