Sat June 26 at 11:30am Sun June 27 at 1:00pm (Check local directory for possible extra weekday screening)

Director Franco Zeffirelli's breathtaking production of Puccini's last opera is a favourite of the Met repertoire. Maria Guleghina plays the ruthless Chinese princess of the title, whose hatred of men is so strong that she has all suitors who can't solve her riddles beheaded. Marcello Giordani sings Càlaf, the unknown prince who eventually wins her love and whose solos include the famous 'Nessun dorma.'
