Presenting the excitement of The Met: Live in HD on the Big Screen: The LIVE transmission of Bellini’s La Sonnambula will be shown for one day only on Saturday, March 21st at 10 AM. Mary Zimmerman underlines La Sonnambula’s dual elements of sleep and wakefulness in an intriguing staging set in the present. Bellini’s hauntingly lyrical score soars as performed by Dessay and Juan Diego Flórez, back from their sensational run together in La Fille du Régiment in leading opera houses around the world. Evelino Pidò conducts.
