From October 30, opera fans will be able to enjoy the return of the Metropolitan Opera, with six new productions set to premiere in Australian cinemas nationally.

The season will launch with René Pape's overwhelming portrayal of the tragic Tsar in Boris Gudanov on October 30, followed by the iconic opening night performance of Fire Shut Up in My Bones on November 20. Dubbed by The New York Times as "bold and affecting" and "subtly powerful" Fire Shut Up in My Bones tells a poignant and profound story about a young man's journey to overcome a life of trauma and hardship, composed by Grammy Award-winning jazz musician and composer Terence Blanchard; the first by a Black composer in the 138-history of the Metropolitan Opera. Blanchard has won five Grammy awards for his jazz records and has written the scores for more than 40 movies including 17 by Spike Lee, earning Oscar nominations for BlacKkKlansman and Da 5 Bloods.

Audiences can also look forward to thrilling and sumptuous returning productions from masters including Strauss, Puccini, and an abridged English-language version of Massenet's timeless classic Cinderella, all part of the Met's award-winning Live in HD series, bringing opera to cinemas across the globe.
