The Third Lander Metropolitan opera of this season, "The Tempest," will be presented in a live, simulcast performance at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Fremont County Library in Lander.
Shakespeare's last play, a drama categorized as one of his comedies, "The Tempest" is a talented mixture of magic and forgiveness on a monumental scale.
This operatic transformation is the work of contemporary British composer, Thomas Ades.
It has received highly praised reviews by Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times, where it was characterized as one of the most inspired, audacious and personal operas.
Robert Lepage has staged "The Tempest" within the stage of La Scala's opera house, providing an unusual and provocative setting.
This is a new production of the Metropolitan which will go on to the Vienna State Opera next year.
Admission to Saturday's opera simulcast is free of charge.
