Dmitri Shostakovich's "The Nose," about a St. Petersburg official whose nose leaves his face and develops a life of its own, will be the next presentation in The Met: Live in HD series in two local movie theaters.
The Metropolitan Opera production will premiere at 12:55 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at East Ridge 18 and Hamilton Place 10-17. An encore presentation will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30.
Running time is about two hours and 15 minutes. It will be sung in Russian with English subtitles.
According to Met officials, returning producer William Kentridge dazzled opera and art lovers alike in his inventive production of "The Nose" during its inaugural run in 2010.
Baritone Paulo Szot reprises his acclaimed performance of a bureaucrat, whose satirical misadventures in search of his missing nose are based on Nikolai Gogol's comic story. Valery Gergiev conducts.
Now in its eighth season, the series continues Nov. 9 with Puccini's "Tosca." For the rest of the schedule, visit www.metopera.org/hdlive.
