The USC School of Cinematic Arts will host a series of satellite broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera presented in spectacular HD digital projection and 5.1 surround sound.
Following a pre-opera discussion hosted by Elizabeth Hynes, chair of vocal arts and opera in the USC Thornton School of Music, a satellite broadcast will feature the Met’s production of Verdi’s Rigoletto. Director Michael Mayer has set his new production of Verdi’s towering tragedy in 1960 Las Vegas. Inspired by the antics of the Rat Pack, this production features Piotr Beczala as the womanizing Duke of Mantua; Zeljko Lucic as his tragic sidekick, Rigoletto; and Diana Damrau as Rigoletto’s daughter, Gilda.
