Nov. 26: Met: Live in HD "The Exterminating Angel" at SJCT

The Met: Live in HD presentation of "The Exterminating Angel" will be screened at 2 p.m. Sunday, November 26 at San Juan Community Theatre.

This surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape has its Met premiere this season, conducted by the composer, Thomas Adès. The 2016 opera, co-commissioned by the Met and sung in English, is based on the screenplay by Luis Buñuel and Luis Alcoriza for the acclaimed 1962 Buñuel film.

Directed by the librettist Tom Cairns, the opera presentation is a co-commission and co-production with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; Royal Danish Theatre; and Salzburg Festival, where the production premiered in 2016.

Tickets -  Adults/$20; Students/$10; Members (at door only)/$18 - can be purchased online or at the box office

SJCT is in its fifth year of partnership with The Metropolitan Opera’s award-winning series of live high definition performance transmissions to theaters around the world. The presentation of these operas is made possible through a generous bequest from the late Dodie Gann and underwriting from The McGee Foundation.
