Fathom Events puts on an eclectic mix of films each year, from anniversary films like Friday and Labyrinth to more recent events such as The Killing Joke, the ability to see films on the big screen either because you missed it its first time around or fr the first time is a plus.

The Met: Live in HD 2016-17 Season is one of Fathom’s many series. The Metropolitan Opera Live HD series is a common annual event bringing live broadcasts on Saturdays with an encore on Wednesdays. Frequently these showings also include behind the scenes footage and interviews. This year the 11th Season begins on October 8th with Tristan & Isolde, the 100th live performance! Synopsis: Nina Stemme stars as Isolde—a touchstone role she has sung with major opera companies around the world. Her Tristan is Australian heldentenor Stuart Skelton, who sang Siegmund in the Met’s Ring Cycle in 2013. The cast also includes Ekaterina Gubanova as Brangäne and Evgeny Nikitin as Kurwenal (both in Met role debuts), with René Pape reprising King Marke, a role he has sung to acclaim in three previous Met seasons. The staging, by Mariusz Treliński (who directed the 2015 Met double bill of Iolanta and Bluebeard’s Castle) is a co-production with the Festival Hall Baden-Baden, Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera, and China National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) Beijing.
