The Academy Center of the Arts has just announced the Metropolitan Opera HD Broadcast 19-20 season, featuring Puccini’s Turandot on Saturday, 10/19 at 12:55pm in the Historic Academy of Music Theatre.

Two of opera’s most thrilling dramatic sopranos, Christine Goerke and Nina Stemme, reprise their fierce portrayals of the title princess. Yannick Nézet-Séguin takes the podium to conduct Franco Zeffirelli’s dazzling production of Puccini’s final masterpiece, which also features tenors Roberto Aronica and Marco Berti as Calàf, sopranos Eleonora Buratto and Hibla Gerzmava as Liù, and bass-baritone James Morris as Timur.

The Academy Center of the Arts and Foster Fuels are proud to partner with Opera on the James to offer a pre-screening talk, beginning one hour prior to the screening at 11:55am.
