As the Metropolitan Opera remains dark until September 2021, Guild Hall and HamptonsFilm have joined cinemas across the globe to exhibit a selection of encore titles from past Live in HD transmissions. For the first time this beloved program will go on the road to Main Beach (104 Ocean Avenue, East Hampton) for a safe and unique drive-in viewing experience.

Admission is $80 per car and the lineup includes Carmen on April 3, Madama Butterflyon April 17, and Porgy & Bess on May 1. Additionally, the three screenings will be preceded by Bel Canto Boot Camp’s thematic “Behind the Screen” program which will provide a deeper understanding and appreciation for each production.
