The Met: Live in HD, at Teatro Vallarta
Published Aug 26, 2013 - (Updated Sep 24, 2014)
Teatro Vallarta continues with The Met's live opera broadcasts from New York's Lincoln Center, joining other important destinations throughout Mexico that offer this important cultural event. The 2014-2015 season features ten extraordinary performances, starring some of the most important opera singers, worldwide. The broadcasts use state-of-the-art technology, including high-definition cameras and surround sound, to place you, the spectator, in the best seat of the house, also including behind-scenes interviews during intermissions—something you wouldn't be able to enjoy were you sitting at the theater!
Good to Know
- All operas take place on Saturdays, usually at noon, although depending on the time of year and/or length of the operas, this is subject to change. It is always a good idea to check Teatro Vallarta's website for any schedule changes.
- More information about each opera, including the cast and brief synopsis, can be found on The Met’s website, where you will also find a video preview of the entire season.
- All operas cost $250 pesos per person to attend (general seating) and are screened with subtitles. Special discounts are available for students and teachers with proper ID.
- Last season, Teatro Vallarta favored the local English speaking community with English subtitles, and there is no reason that might indicate they would proceed otherwise this season.
- Since the operas are broadcast live, arriving on time is strongly recommended. Tickets are available at Teatro Vallarta's box office and through Ticketmaster Mexico. Teatro Vallarta is located at Uruguay 184 in Puerto Vallarta's El Centro, across from the Ley supermarket and a short walk from the Malecón.
- Vallarta Lifestyles Managing Editor, Paco Ojeda, offers free, introductory talks at Teatro Vallarta in English, one hour prior to every opera performance. More information about the talks and other topics related to the opera broadcasts and classical music performances in Puerto Vallarta and Mexico, can be found in his dedicated bilingual newsletter.
