Opera screening at The Grand Jan. 29

ELLSWORTH — The 2021-22 season of Metropolitan Opera screenings at The Grand continues on Saturday, Jan. 29, at 12:55 p.m. with “Rigoletto.”

Tony Award-winning director Bartlett Sher creates a bold new take on Verdi’s timeless tragedy, resetting the opera’s action in 1920s Europe, with art deco sets by Michael Yeargan and elegant costumes by Catherine Zuber. Baritone Quinn Kelsey, a commanding artist at the height of his powers, brings his searing portrayal of the title role to the Met for the first time, starring alongside soprano Rosa Feola as Gilda and tenor Piotr Beczała as the Duke of Mantua, with leading maestro Daniele Rustioni on the podium.

Tickets are $28 for adults, $26 for Grand members and $21 for students (15 and under).
