Composer Thomas Adès conducts the Metropolitan Opera premiere of his 2004 work, with baritone Simon Keenlyside starring as Prospero. Director Robert Lepage recreates the interior of 18th-century La Scala in this inventive staging.

Time: 6:30PM

Cost: $18.00 (if you purchase tickets online there is a $2.00 service fee. This service fee is waived if you have an AMC Stubs Card).

I will be wearing my cowboy hat and be waiting in the lobby area to the right of the ticket purchasing area.

I will be in the lobby from 6PM-6:20PM, after that I will head into the screening room.
