Fathom Events is partnering with more than 650 movie theaters across the country, some of them in Northern Virginia, so that opera performance can be appreciated from the comfort of closer-to-home venues.

The 2017-18 season of The Met: Live in HD, will feature 11 broadcast performances, five of them new, starting on Oct. 7 with Bellini’s Norma.

In addition to the live performances, audiences will also get to go behind the scenes in exclusive interviews with some of The Met’s leading artists.
