Met live presents ‘Idomeneo’

Steven Martz, Contributing Writer

It’s time for MIAC to bring another riveting opera from The Met to Mercyhurst.
MIAC is live streaming “Idomeneo” in the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center on Saturday.
The performance will begin at 12:55 p.m. “Idomeneo” will last about four hours with two 35-minute intermissions.
“Idomeneo” takes place after the Trojan War on Crete.
The aftermath that is shown from the war is important to the story line and opera itself because it reflects the confusion after a shocking historical moment.
The Opera features a wonderful cast as well. James Levine is conducting, Nadine Sierra is playing Ilia, Elza van den Heever will be Elettra, Alice Coote will be Idamate, Matthew Polenzani is cast as Idomeneo and Alan Opie is playing Arbace.
The librettist is Giambattista Varesco and the opera will be sung in its original Italian.
Adult tickets are $18,  seniors and students $15 and youth tickets are $10.
Tickets are free for Mercyhurst students with their student ID.
Don’t miss your chance to see a performance from The Met in NY here at the Hurst.
