Live broadcast of Met Opera's 'Capriccio' is April 24

The Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center will host a live broadcast of Strauss's "Capriccio" at noon April 23. An encore performance is at 1 p.m., April 24.

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.

On opening night of the 2008–09 season, Renée Fleming dazzled audiences when she sang the final scene of Strauss’s wise and worldly meditation on art and life. Now she performs the entire work, in which the composer explores the essence of opera itself. Matthew Polenzani and Sarah Connolly also star, and Andrew Davis conducts.

Projected running time is three hours.

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