The Metropolitan Opera: The Exterminating Angel

Rated NR 150 min. 2017

Fathom Events and The Met: Live in HD present a broadcast of Thomas Adès's The Exterminating Angel, live in select cinemas nationwide on Saturday, November 18. The Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès's The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as "inventive and audacious ... a major event," The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can't escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera.
