Mount Vic Flicks is taking a break from June 28 to July 20.
The Met Opera's Prese Release:
Not complying with the Met’s condition that she repudiate her public support for Vladimir Putin while he wages war on Ukraine, soprano Anna Netrebko has withdrawn from her upcoming Met performances in Puccini's Turandot this April and May, as well as the run of Verdi's Don Carlo next season. “It is a great artistic loss for the Met and for opera,” said Met General Manager Peter Gelb. “Anna is one of the greatest singers in Met history, but with Putin killing innocent victims in Ukraine, there was no way forward.” Netrebko will be replaced in Turandot by Ukranian soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska.
Marco Armiliato conducts Puccini’s stirring opera, which takes the stage in the company’s dazzling, ever-popular production by Franco Zeffirelli. Soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska plays Puccini’s icy princess, tenor Yonghoon Lee is the bold prince determined to win Turandot’s love, alongside soprano Michelle Bradley as the devoted servant Liù and legendary bass Ferruccio Furlanetto as the blind king Timur.
Cast: Liudmyla Monastyrska, Tenor Yonghoon, Michelle Bradley, Ferruccio Furlanetto
