For the first time since February 2020, live opera from the Met stage returns to cinemas this month with the new season of The Met: Live in HD, the Metropolitan Opera’s Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series of opera transmissions to movie theatres worldwide.

On Saturday, October 30, German bass René Pape reprises his acclaimed portrayal of the title role of Mussorgsky’s Russian historical drama Boris Godunov, which is presented for the first time at the Met in its original 1869 version. Running just over two hours and presented without intermission, Stephen Wadsworth’s production is riveting and cinematic, brilliantly capturing Boris’s inner turmoil and the hope and suffering of the oppressed Russian people. Maestro Sebastian Weigle takes the podium to lead an outstanding ensemble cast, and soprano Angel Blue hosts the transmission.

A "significant milestone … conducted with cool, efficient clarity and seriousness by Sebastian Weigle … [and] led by the production’s star from 2010, the bass René Pape, his voice as burnished and secure as ever as Boris. … the occasion for several accomplished Met debuts” –The New York Times
