New York Opera broadcast live in Dubai
Dubai, November 23, 2008
Dubai Event Management Corporation (DEMC) transmitted live the third performance of the New York Metropolitan Opera.
The event on Saturday was broadcast at the Madinat Theatre in Souq Madinat Jumeirah.
Robert Lepage, one of theatre’s most imaginative directors, applied his artistry to Berlioz’s contemplation of good and evil in La Damnation de Faust, starring Marcello Giordani in the title role, with Susan Graham as Marguerite and John Relyea as Méphistophélès. James Levine conducted the production.
The event, one of the 10 performances scheduled for the 2008-2009 season, was transmitted to more than 850 theatres in approximately 30 countries worldwide.
With the previous two transmissions, Dubai has become the first in the Middle East, alongside other global cities in Europe and South America, to join the network for transmitting ‘The Met: Live in HD’.
“Following the success of previous transmissions, we were convinced this performance will be one of the season’s best. James Levine is a genius conductor and I am glad that DEMC bridged Dubai and New York with such a scintillating cultural event,” said CEO of DEMC Richard Attias. – TradeArabia News Service
