IF you are looking for an evening of world class entertainment but don’t want to travel too far, then Cineworld at Touchwood has the answer, with its series of live performances by the New York Metropolitan Opera.

Presenting three of the best operas via its ‘Live in HD experience’, the series allows people to enjoy world class performances live from the Big Apple right here in the heart of England.

Those who come along on March 7 can experience the magic of Puccini’s tragic masterpiece, ‘Madame Butterfly’, a beautiful, yet heartbreaking tale set in Japan, whilst guests on March 21 can be swept away by Bellini’s hauntingly lyrical La Sonnambula, a story of love, jealously and misunderstanding.

Finally, for a performance that the whole family will enjoy, May 9 will see the showcase of Rossini’s bel canto variation of Cinderella, Le Cernerentola, with musical brilliance and comic twists and turns throughout this famous fairytale

The performances will be broadcast direct to Cineworld’s deluxe screen, allowing viewers to completely indulge in this exclusive New York experience without having to travel halfway across the world.

Guests can also enjoy spacious seating and a luxurious in-screen bar, which will serve refreshments throughout and during the intermission to further enhance the atmosphere.

Now in its 125th year, the Metropolitan Opera House is home to one of the most famous opera company in the world with some of the most creative and talented artists, making these exclusive performances an opportunity not to be missed.

Prices start from £14.70 for adults and £11.70 for concessions.
