One of The Met: Live in HD’s newest operas also features a record for the 137-year-old opera organization. Thomas Adés’ “The Exterminating Angel” will be screened at San Juan Community Theatre at 2 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 28.
The surreal fantasy, which premiered at the Metropolitan Opera in 2017, features soprano Audrey Luna hitting the highest A above high C note in its history. The opera is about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape and is based on the screenplay by Luis
Buñuel and Luis Alcoriza for the acclaimed 1962 Buñuel film.
Directed by the librettist Tom Cairns, the opera presentation is a co-commission and co-production with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; Royal Danish Theatre; and Salzburg Festival, where the production premiered in 2016.
