ELLSWORTH — Screenings of performances from the Metropolitan Opera are back at The Grand.
The 2021-22 season continues on Saturday, Dec. 11, at 12:55 p.m. with an encore screening of “Eurydice.”
The ancient Greek myth of Orpheus, who attempts to harness the power of music to rescue his beloved Eurydice from the underworld, has inspired composers since opera’s earliest days. Rising American composer Matthew Aucoin now carries that tradition into the 21st century with a captivating new take on the story.
Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin takes the podium, leading Aucoin’s evocative music and an immersive new staging by Mary Zimmerman. Soprano Erin Morley sings the title role, opposite baritone Joshua Hopkins as Orpheus and countertenor Jakub Józef Orliński as his otherworldly alter ego.
Tickets are $28 for adults, $26 for Grand members and $21 for students (15 and under).
