I’m looking at the Met schedule, as well as the opera in cinema site and thinking about how I’d like to attend some of these.

If I go to the Saturday morning Met operas I have to cancel students. Hmm. Probably not nice to do that to them, so maybe I should attend the rebroadcast on Wednesday at 6:30 when I’m able. I think I’ll put together the schedule and compare it to my own. Surely some of these will work.

… as you might guess, I really do love opera. We have San Francisco season tickets … but I’d love to see and hear these others. We’ll see if I can swing it.

  1. I hope you enjoy if you go.

    Just a word of caution: these tend to sell out quickly, at least in some areas.

    For the full schedule and to purchase tickets online go directly to this site:

  2. We’ve actually attended a few already, Susan! And loved ’em, too. Since we can’t seem to get to NYC, the movies at least let us get sort of close. The theatre we visit is fairly close, and I usually *have* bought the tickets ahead of time. 🙂

    Now to figure out what I can go to!
