Off to the movies

For those of you who missed it, Saturday's Met broadcast into the 83 movie theatres across the country was not, as has been for the past two years, a full length opera. The Audition featured a behind the scenes look at last year's Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, or the Met Competition as it's known to singers across North America. This was a chance for young singers (and old) as well as the general opera-going public to see just what goes on back stage at a high level competition where thousands of dollars and major career opportunities are on the line. A definate must watch. Find show times and get tickets (if they're not already sold out,) for the repeat performance on June 15, 7pm (EST, I think,) here.
