Sun Valley Opera and Metropolitan Theatres will present “Wozzeck,’ to debut the second half of the 2019-20 series of live opera broadcasts from the New York Metropolitan Opera.
Directed by the Met’s Yannick Nézet-Séguin, with baritone Peter Mattei as the disturbed title character, South African artist William Kentridge will bring his “extraordinary visual imagination” to composer Alban Berg’s “Wozzeck” on Saturday, Jan. 11.
“One of the emblematic achievements of the thriving artistic forces in Germany and Austria during the brief period between world wars, ‘Wozzeck’ was a sensation and a scandal at its premiere at the Saatsoper in Berlin in 1925,” Sun Valley Opera stated.
The live opera broadcast will premiere at the Bigwood4 Cinema in Hailey. Doors will open at 10:15 a.m. for coffee sponsored by Hailey Coffee Co. and the show will begin at 11 a.m.
In February the season will continue with the Gershwins’ “Porgy and Bess.”
