The Exterminating Angel – The Met: Live in HD

Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 1 p.m.
Collins Center for the Arts

Composer Thomas Adés conducts his own adventurous new opera, a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Celebrate Opera Week by seeing this new production, broadcast live from The Met!

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: A wealthy couple hosts a dinner party. But when the meal is over, even though there’s no evident physical barrier, everyone finds it mysteriously impossible to leave the room. Days go by; the guests become hungry, dirty and hysterical, eventually turning on one another. (Think “Lord of the Bourgeois Flies.”)
