2019 Summer HD Festival at Lincoln Center
The Met’s 11th Summer HD Festival at Lincoln Center features 11 thrilling performances from the Met’s Live in HD series of cinema transmissions—plus a special pre-festival screening of Stanley Donen’s enchanting Funny Face, featuring songs by George and Ira Gershwin, a co-presentation with Film at Lincoln Center. The showings run from August 23 through September 2, with approximately 3,000 seats set up in front of the opera house each night, as well as additional standing room around Lincoln Center Plaza.
Massenet’s effervescent take on the classic Cinderella story stars Joyce DiDonato as the title character, in a delightfully zany production by Laurent Pelly. It will be shown on August 29.
