The Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center will host a live broadcast of Rossini's "Le Comte Ory" at noon, April 9. An encore performance is at 1 p.m., April 10.

The performance is part of the 2010-2011 season of "The Met: Live in HD," a series that features live broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City.

Rossini’s vocally dazzling comedy stars bel canto sensation Juan Diego Flórez in the title role of this Met premiere production. He vies with mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, in the trouser role of Isolier, for the love of the lonely Countess Adèle, sung by soprano Diana Damrau. Bartlett Sher, director of the Met’s hit productions of The Barber of Seville and The Tales of Hoffmann, describes the world of the opera as, “a place where love is dangerous. People get hurt. That can be very funny and very painful. Rossini captures both—with the most beautiful love music Rossini ever wrote.”

Tickets are $23 general admission, $21 senior citizens, $16 for Ross members, students and children, and $5 for students (with a valid NCard).
