In collaboration with the Whitefish Arts Council (WAC), the Whitefish Performing Arts Center (PAC), and the Whitefish Theatre Company (WTC), the 2022-2023 live streaming season of the Metropolitan Opera returns to Whitefish! Medea, the first of 10 live-on-screen performances, will be held at the O'Shaughnessy Center.
A French language opera by Luigi Cherubini, Medea is based on a dark chapter of Greek Mythology. Medea, a king’s daughter who possesses magical powers, falls in love and bears two sons with Thessalian prince Jason, bolstering his ambitions to seize the powerful Golden Fleece. However, when Medea is betrayed and ultimately spurned when Jason marries another, her horrifying act of vengeance destroys everything – and everyone – that binds them. Grand opera thinks big and Medea is as big as they get!
Run time is 2 hours and 50 minutes, including one 30 minute intermission. The show begins at 10:55am sharp with doors to the O'Shaughnessy Center opening at 10:30am. Beverages, sandwiches and other food items will be available for purchase.
The opera will have subtitles. Take a chance on the wonderful world of opera this season and check out a show - or two - or ten!
