The Metropolitan Opera: Iolanta/Duke Bluebeard's Castle Encore

The Met Opera's encore performance of Tchaikovsky's Iolanta / Bartók's Bluebeard's Castle will be shown in select cinemas on Wednesday, February 18 at 6:30 p.m. in all time zones. Please note: not all cinemas showing the live transmission will present an encore showing.

On the heels of her triumphant Met performances in Eugene Onegin, soprano Anna Netrebko takes on another Tchaikovsky heroine in the first opera of this intriguing double bill, consisting of an enchanting fairy tale (Iolanta) followed by an erotic psychological thriller (Bluebeard's Castle). Netrebko stars as the beautiful blind girl who experiences love for the first time in Iolanta, while Nadja Michael is the unwitting victim of the diabolical Bluebeard, played by Mikhail Petrenko. Both operas are directed by Mariusz Treli?ski, who was inspired by classic noir films of the 1940s. Iolanta also stars Piotr Beczala, and Valery Gergiev conducts both operas.
