A Night at The Met

This Saturday I am doing the coolest thing.

I am going to the The Met in New York City...sort of. The latest in modern entertainment is a series of events called "The Met: Live in HD."

Matinee performances are streamed live from The Met to movie theaters across the country (follow link above to see if it is playing near you).

Opera in real time. Is that cool or what?

Apparently it is filmed so that it seems like you are actually in the audience and movie viewers get so enthralled in the performance that they applaud as if the can be heard, cute eh?

So this Saturday, I am "going to The Met" to see Simon Boccanegra, starring tenor Plácido Domingo.

I've never been so excited to go to the movies! Join me?

That is so exciting Anne. I'm going to see Avatar in 3D tomorrow. Doesn't equate, does it?
