The Tempest screening at Rialto

The Metropolitan Opera presents a Shakespearean classic, The Tempest, this Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Rialto Theatre.

The New York Times calls Thomas Adès’s masterpiece “one of the most inspired, audacious and personal operas to have come along in years.”

Robert Lepage’s “fantastical production…offers a superb cast, headed by the charismatic baritone Simon Keenlyside… Ariel is a dazzling creation and Audrey Luna conquers the role… Jasmine Catudal’s sets are alluring and inventive… (Composer and conductor Thomas) Adès drew a textured, glittering and suspenseful account of his opera from the great Met orchestra.”  Tickets for all of the Rialto Met performances are on sale now at the theatre.

For more information, call the Rialto Theatre at 250-338-5502.
