Anna Bolena at the Suncor Energy Centre for the Performing Arts

Be transported back in history to the time of King Henry VIII with The Met: Live in HD performance of Anna Bolena.  

AECON brings the Met Opera to Fort McMurray with
Anna Netrebko starring as the ill-fated queen driven insane by her unfaithful king in this premiere production by David McVicar based on the final tragic days of Anne Boleyn.   “The lynchpin of the story,” McVicar says, “is Anne’s inability to provide Henry with the male heir that he craves. And of course, to be a wife of Henry VIII is to risk as much as you gain.”

Saturday, October 27th
7:00 pm
Suncor Energy Centre for the Performing Arts
Tickets: $19.95 or less; available at the Box Office or by phone at 780-792-0012 ext. 2

New to Opera?  You're not alone!  Here are a few pointers:

  • You will know what's going in because there are subtitles throughout the performance
  • There is no dress code
  • Prepare to be amazed by the high definition images and surround sound
  • There are interesting backstage interviews and tours as part of the show
  • You will have the best seat in the house at a fraction of the cost

“Anna Netrebko scores a huge success in her most challenging role yet…she can melt our hearts one moment with a soft high C of great delicacy, then pin us to the backs of our seats the next with a ferocious outburst of notes.” –Associated Press
