This upcoming Saturday “Met at the Movies” will have its last HD Broadcast of this season: Donizetti’s La Fille du Régiment. Here’s a review from New York Times:
Comedy works best, one theory goes, when the people in it don’t know they are being funny. Another school favors a more Marxian (Groucho, not Karl) approach, in which the reasonable turns into the improbable, and the improbable into the outrageous.

Everyone seems to like this production – go check it out at your local movie theater! For locations, click here.
