BRATLEBORO -- The Latchis Theatre’s presentations of The MetLive in HD and the National Theatre Live continue this weekend with "Falstaff" on Saturday at 1 p.m., and "Frankenstein" on Sunday at 1 p.m.
An undisputed master of Verdi’s final comic masterpiece, James Levine conducts Robert Carsen’s acclaimed production, the first new Met "Falstaff" since 1964. Ambrogio Maestri sings the role of the blustery Sir John Falstaff, opposite a marvelous ensemble cast, including Angela Meade and Stephanie Blythe.
General admission is $26, $24 for MET Forever members. The running time is approximately three hours and 20 minutes.
The National Theatre Live’s 2011 broadcast of "Frankenstein" returns to cinemas as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations. "Frankenstein" enjoyed a sell-out run and went on to win awards including the 2012 Oliver Award for Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller. Oscar-winner Danny Boyle ("Trainspotting," "Slumdog Millionaire") directs a sensational production with Benedict Cumberbatch ("Star Trek: Into Darkness," BBC’s "Sherlock") and Jonny Lee Miller ("Trainspotting," CBS’ "Elementary") alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.
General admission is $20 and the run time is two hours and four minutes. For ticket information and reservations, call 802-254-1109, ext. 4 or purchase tickets at brattleborotix.com.
