GIVEAWAY: screening of THE MET LIVE in HD ‘THE MERRY WIDOW’ Wednesday, July 22 (Phila, PA area)

The Merry Widow

Happy Monday evening MMT Fam! Okay, so here’s a special giveaway – but you must be an MMT subscriber to qualify. The Metropolian Opera is presenting its favorite Summer Live In HD Encores in cinemas for 2015-16 – with its regular live season premiering on October 3 with Il Trovatore!

Four lucky MMT subscribers will be chosen to view the 2nd presentation THE MERRY WIDOW on Wednesday, July 22 at one of four local area theaters of their choice. The great Renée Fleming stars as the beguiling femme fatale who captivates all Paris in Lehár’s enchanting operetta, seen in a new staging by Broadway virtuoso director and choreographer Susan Stroman (The Producers, Oklahoma!, Contact). Stroman and her design team of Julian Crouch (Satyagraha, The Enchanted Island) and costume designer William Ivey Long (Cinderella, Grey Gardens, Hairspray) have created an art-nouveau setting that climaxes with singing and dancing grisettes at the legendary Maxim’s. Nathan Gunn co-stars as Danilo and Kelli O’Hara is Valencienne. Mezzo-soprano diva Susan Graham takes on the title role later in the run. Sir Andrew Davis and Fabio Luisi conduct.

Want to put your name in the hat for a pair of passes? Make sure you are signed up to follow our site and send an email to with the subject line “Verdi” and your full name in the body. Winners will be chosen at random and notified on Tuesday, July 21.

You can get additional information about the Met’s summer live in cinemas and regular 2015-16 season at the official website here.

Good Luck Family!
