Live from New York

Opera screenings in cinemas are big news these days.

So the Barbican is bang on trend with 10 live link-ups planned for the autumn with the Met Opera in New York. Blockbuster productions including Puccini’s Tosca, Verdi’s Falstaff, and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin will be beamed live to the Barbi via satellite. Make a night of it by pre-ordering a special Met Opera bento box and glass of wine. But be quick – a couple of the operas are already sold out.
