The Met's "Peter Grimes" to be on the silver screen

The Met’s second season of “Live in HD” continues with PETER GRIMES, the fifth opera in a series of eight performances from the Metropolitan Opera that will be broadcast live from New York via satellite into more than 350 movie theaters across the country. Intermission features include live backstage interviews with the stars and preview the upcoming Metropolitan Opera performances.

PETER GRIMES - Peter Grimes is under investigation for unthinkable transgressions, yet Benjamin Britten’s probing exploration of the nature of guilt and judgment implicates an entire fishing village. Director John Doyle, a Tony Award® winner for his interpretation of Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd, makes his Met debut answering the challenges of this modern masterpiece. Tenor Anthony Dean Griffey takes on the complex title role, and the riveting Patricia Racette plays Ellen Orford, the woman who refuses to abandon him. Featuring what may be 20th-century opera’s most impressive tenor role, Peter Grimes, with its sweeping orchestral beauty, is a haunting theatrical journey.
