Met's 'Thais' with Fleming simulcast at the Lyric
The Baltimore Opera has gone dark for the remainder of the season (and perhaps beyond), but the company's longtime home remains operatically active.
This week, the Lyric Opera House presents a re-broadcast of Massenet's Thais performed on the stage of New York's Metropolitan Opera last month with luminous soprano Renee Fleming in the title role. The hi-def simulcast will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Lyric. Tickets are $25.
(Maryland movie theaters participating in The Met: Live in HD series will also offer the Thais re-broadcast on Wednesday.)
As for whether the Lyric will continue to offer the hi-def Met simulcasts originally scheduled for the rest of the season (and presented with Baltimore Opera), that remains to be seen and heard.
