Bainbridge Cinemas has been chosen to broadcast all 10 performances of the Metropolitan Opera live from the Met stage, beginning Saturday, Oct. 5.

“The Met: Live in HD” series will be on screen Saturday mornings live via high definition.

“The exquisite images and Dolby digital sound will give our audiences literally the best possible seats in the house,” said Jeff Brein, co-owner of Bainbridge Cinemas.

The Met series will also be broadcast at Olympic Cinemas in Bremerton, the only other theater in Kitsap County to show the series.

“Because the opera series has been so successful at Bainbridge Cinemas and many folks travel from all over Kitsap County and beyond to see it, we’re expanding it and other alternative programming (concerts, etc.) to Olympic Cinemas,” said Jeff Brein, managing partner of Far Away Entertainment.

The 2013-2014 season of “The Met: Live in HD” begins with Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin on Saturday, Oct. 5 and will feature 10 live presentations through May 2014.

The series continues at 9:55 a.m. Oct. 26 with “The Nose”; “Tosca” at 9:55 a.m. Nov. 9; a new production of “Falstaff” at 9:55 a.m. Dec. 14; “Rusalka” at 9:55 a.m. Feb. 8; a new production of “Prince Igor” at 9 a.m. March 1; a new production of “Werther” at 9 a.m. March 15; “La Bohème” at 9:55 a.m. April 5; and “Così fan tutte” at 9:55 a.m. April 26.

In addition to world-class performances from the Metropolitan Opera, the series includes interviews and behind-the-scenes features. Ticket prices are $22 for adults and $20 for seniors (65 and above) and children (11 and under).

Tickets are now on sale at Bainbridge Cinemas and the theaters’ website.
