Calling all Opera Lovers! This is a group for lovers of opera in general and productions of New York's Metropolitan Opera in particular! If you've seen a production of the Met, whether in the actual opera house at Lincoln Center Plaza, via the Met's "Live in HD" in a movie theater, or even online through "Met Opera on Demand", then you are just the person to join this group. We will meet and talk about all things opera including Met productions, current and historic, opera singers, and past and future Live in HD productions. We will be arranging bus trips from the Washington DC area up to the actual opera house in Manhattan, since while watching opera in a theater auditorium can be great, there is nothing quite like seeing and hearing an actual production in the house. Join us if you love opera and want to meet like-minded folks in the DC area!
Half a century ago, Plácido Domingo made his debut at the Arena di Verona: on 16 July 1969 he sang the role of Calaf in Puccini’s “Turandot”; in August followed the title role in Verdi’s “Don Carlo”. Since then, the world-famous singer has appeared in numerous acclaimed performances in the city of Romeo and Juliet. From the Arena di Verona comes an operatic gala concert event, captured live on August 4, 2019, marking the 50th anniversary of the debut of one of the greatest singers the world has ever known. The program features excerpts from three famous operas by Giuseppe Verdi: Nabucco, Macbeth and Simon Boccanegra.
