Broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City via the big screen, it’s a performance of Dvorak’s romantic opera Rusalka. Thanks to hi-definition television, these broadcasts often offer virtually the best seat in the house. Info and tickets. Transparency disclaimer: this is a recorded broadcast.
