The Met: Live in HD: “Eurydice” at Collins Center
January 15 @ 1:00 pm$25 adults; $20 seniors; $10 students
The Collins Center for the Arts will host a broadcast of the Metropolitan Opera’s “Eurydice” on Saturday, Jan. 15, at 1 p.m.
The ancient Greek myth of Orpheus, who attempts to harness the power of music to rescue his beloved Eurydice from the underworld, has inspired composers since opera’s earliest days. Rising American composer Matthew Aucoin now carries that tradition into the 21st century with a captivating new take on the story.
With a libretto by MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient Sarah Ruhl, adapted from her acclaimed 2003 play, the opera reimagines the familiar tale from Eurydice’s point of view. Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin takes the podium, leading Aucoin’s evocative music and an immersive new staging by Mary Zimmerman.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors (ages 65 and up) and $10 for students.
