The Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center will host a live broadcast of Handel's "Rodelinda" at noon Dec 3. An encore performance is at 1 p.m., Dec. 4. The performance is part of "The Met: Live in HD" series of live broadcasts from New York City's Metropolitan Opera House.

Sensational in the 2004 Met premiere of Stephen Wadsworth’s much-heralded production, Renée Fleming reprises the title role. She’s joined by Stephanie Blythe and countertenor Andreas Scholl. Baroque specialist Harry Bicket conducts.

The opera's expected running time is four hours and 15 minutes.

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