Madame Butterfly
Patricia Racette sings the title role in the late Anthony Minghella’s stunning production of Puccini’s tragedy, a new classic of the Met repertory that opened the 2006–07 season. Marcello Giordani is American Navy Lieutenant B.F. Pinkerton, and Dwayne Croft and Maria Zifchak co-star. Patrick Summers conducts.

Wednesday, June 22, 6:30pm
Don Pasquale
Anna Netrebko reprises her sensational turn in this sophisticated bel canto comedy, opposite Matthew Polenzani, Mariusz Kwiecien, and John Del Carlo in the title role. Music Director James Levine conducts. When Otto Schenk’s production premiered in 2006, the New York Times called it “brilliant” and “wonderful.”

Wednesday, June 29, 6:30pm
Simon Boccanegra
Four decades into a legendary Met career, tenor Plácido Domingo makes history singing the title role in Verdi’s gripping political thriller, which is written for a baritone.

Laurent Pelly’s hilarious production stars Natalie Dessay as the tomboy Marie, who has been brought up as the “daughter of the regiment,” and Juan Diego Flórez as the young man in love with her. Dazzling coloratura, including Flórez’s nine high Cs in his act-one aria, meets perfect comic timing. Legendary actress Marian Seldes makes a special appearance as the Duchess of Krakenthorp and Marco Armiliato conducts.

Tosca
Luc Bondy’s dramatic production of Puccini’s operatic thriller, which Le Monde called “a perfect night at the opera,” stars Karita Mattila in the title role.

ShowPlace Icon to Premiere “An Affirmative Act”

ShowPlace Theatres announces an exclusive run of their newest feature film, An Affirmative Act, at Kerasotes ShowPlace ICON Theatre beginning April 1, 2011. An Affirmative Act is the first-ever courtroom drama about the legalization of gay marriage. The premise of the film is unique – a lesbian couple is charged with fraud for marrying under the false pretenses of being a heterosexual couple. They did so in order to adopt their child and obtain equal benefits and rights. Defended by a charismatic heterosexual attorney, but fought by a governor seeking to protect his anti-gay marriage bill, a massive media-covered courtroom battle ensues. The film stars multiple Academy Award and Emmy winners and nominees and was written and produced by veteran producer and best-selling author Ken Del Vecchio. The all-star cast features Blanche Baker, (Emmy winner; Sixteen Candles), Charles Durning (2-time Academy Award/4-time Golden Globe/9-time Emmy winner and nominee), Justin Deas (6-time Emmy winner), and Eric Etebari (Witchblade; The Lincoln Lawyer). A legal thriller filled with twists and mystery from beginning to end, An Affirmative Act has been described by Echelon Magazine as “a riveting courtroom drama guaranteed to inflame the passions of the masses”. “I’m thrilled to have created a movie that elicits such a strong response on a topic that is so important in our country right now,” says Ken Del Vecchio, writer and producer of more than 15 star-filled feature films. “The law, the courtroom and politics are central to this film. But it’s the personal struggle to obtain equality that is at its heart. Today, we need to bring attention to this issue so that justice is ultimately served.”

COST: $12.50 adults; $10 children (must be accompanied by adult)
