Zandonai's compelling opera, inspired by an episode from Dante's
Inferno, returns in the Met's ravishingly beautiful production,
last seen in 1986. Dramatic soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek and tenor
Marcello Giordani are the doomed lovers. Marco Armiliato
"Francesca di Rimini" is hosted locally by Kathie Finney.
The Metropolitan Opera Live in HD series is made possible by a
generous grant from the Neubauer Family Foundation. OCCA
thanks the Jeannette B. Hofer Fund at the Oregon Community
Foundation, the City of Newport, season benefactors Anonymous and
Bill and JoAnn Barton, opera hosts, OCCA members and you who
purchase tickets, for making this a reality. Thank you.
