    The MET: Live in HD - Bellini's Norma

    The MET: Live in a theatre near you! Come see Bellini’s beautiful opera, Norma.

    Throughout the year, students have a limited number of chances to see an opera from the MET streamed live to our local Cinemark movie theatre. Each opera will feature different activities before the showing to prepare students for the music they’re about to hear and characters they’re about to see. The MET HD Live in Schools program also does behind-the-scenes interviews throughout the performance, providing an incredible opportunity to meet some of the stars of the show as it’s going on! A synopsis of Norma can be found on the Metropolitan Opera website, here.

    For Norma, we will meet right at the theatre (750 Great Northern Blvd) at 10:30 AM. The show will begin at 11:00 AM and will be done by 2:15 PM. Parents will pick-up right at the theatre by 2:30 PM.

    Tickets to the opera are free courtesy of the HD Live in Schools  program!

    All trips require a permission slip to be turned in prior to the weekend of the event.

    All trips are accompanied by music teachers from the Helena School District.
