Following the rapturous response to his last opera, The Tempest, the Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès’s The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event”. The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera. 

Come join us for an entertaining and enriching evening, viewing the new production of the "Exterminating Angel" on the big screen.  Enjoy an enriching and entertaining viewing of this live perfomance from the New York Metropolitan Opera House.  The opera will be rebroadcast in High Definition with Dolby sound at the Bethanie, Cowshed Theatre.  There will be interviews held with the leading performers during the intermission.

This is a brand new Opera, sophisticate and experiemental, not from the normal Metropolitian repertoire.  If you're interested in something different, this event might be the one to try!

Music by Thomas Adès, libretto by Tom Cairns in collaboration with the composer, based on the screenplay by Luis Buñuel and Luis Alcoriza

Production a gift of Robert L. Turner
