Movie Info

Fathom Events and The Metropolitan Opera present The Opera House, a new film by documentary filmmaker Susan Froemke, on January 13 and 17 only. The Opera House surveys a remarkable period of the Metropolitan Opera's history and a time of great change for New York. Featuring rarely seen footage, recent interviews, and a soundtrack of extraordinary Met performances, the film chronicles the creation of the Met's home of the last 50 years, against the backdrop of the artists, architects, and politicians who shaped cultural life in New York City. Among the notable figures in the film are famed soprano Leontyne Price, who opened the new Met in 1966 in Samuel Barber's Antony and Cleopatra; Rudolf Bing, the Met's imperious General Manager, who engineered the move from the old house to the new one; Robert Moses, the unstoppable city planner who bulldozed an entire neighborhood to make room for Lincoln Center; and Wallace Harrison, whose quest for architectural glory was never fully realized.
