The Met Live Summer Encores will bring beloved opera classics to the silver screen in Potsdam once again this July and August.
The 2013 Met Live Summer Encores will feature rebroadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera’s award-winning series of live performances, which are transmitted to movie theaters across the globe through The Met: Live in HD.
North Country audiences can enjoy “Mondays at the Met” this summer, with six screenings at Potsdam’s Roxy Theater this July and August. All broadcasts are offered on Mondays at 6:30 p.m.
The 2013 Summer Encores schedule and approximate running times are:
