Saturday 13th May

The Met in association with Classical Arts Ireland

The dream cast of Renee Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian star in Strauss’s grandest opera.

In his new production, Robert Carsen places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Gunther Groissbock as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts the

sparklingly perfect score.

The Metropolitan Opera in New York is celebrating its 11th season of the ground breaking Live in HD programme, and with Classical Arts Ireland you can watch Opera on the big screen at Droichead

Approx. running time: 4 hours 40 min
