The Exterminating Angel in HD at The Grand!
ELLSWORTH- On November 18th at 1 pm The Grand’s 2017 – 2018 season of “Live in HD” high-definition simulcasts from The New York Metropolitan Opera continues with the American premiere of Thomas Adès’s The Exterminating Angel (inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name). Tickets are $27.00 for adults, $25.00 for Grand members and $20.00 for students (15 and under).
Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event,” The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera.
