WHAT: Cineplex Entertainment is pleased to announce that the fourth

Met: Live in HD series and will be transmitted live from New York

singer, a free-thinking painter and a sadistic chief of police -
caught in a net of love and politics. Soprano Karita Matilla sings
the title role for the first time outside her native Finland,
Marcelo Alvarez performs as Cavaradossi and Juha Uusitalo as
Scarpia. Luc Bondy, acclaimed for his imaginative theatre and
opera productions, directs and Joseph Colaneri conducts.
