The Metropolitan Opera’s award-winning series of live opera and the best of British theater from the London stage are now coming to Friday Harbor.
San Juan Community Theatre will be presenting The Met: Live in HD and National Theatre Live productions inside the Whittier Theatre (see schedule below). SJCT joins more than 1,900 theaters in 64 countries that will record the live transmissions via a satellite feed and then present them to theater audiences.
This new partnership, including purchasing new sound, satellite and projector equipment, was made possible thanks to a bequest from the late Dodie Gann.
“Our new high definition projector and the amazing sound upgrades bring the world stage into our community,” said SJCT Artistic Director Susan Williams. “Watching the most exciting talents in the world perform with the Met and National Theatre is an experience you won’t forget.”
SJCT will kick off the new programs during a premiere summer event on Sunday, August 18, featuring an encore performance of The Met’s Carmen and a Mediterranean cuisine dinner by chef Gretchen Allison (formerly of Duck Soup Inn). Tickets and information for this fundraising event are available on-line HERE.
Tickets for the 2013-2014 season of The Met: Live in HD and National Theatre Live will be available for sale in the SJCT box office and on-line beginning August 21.
