For a few years now, the MET (New York Metropolitan Opera) has broadcasted in cinemas worldwide its productions live and in HD.

On November 22, 2008, opera lovers will have the chance to see and hear Berlioz’s La Damnation de Faust, directed by Robert Lepage, in selected cinemas across Québec.

Ex Machina’s version of La Damnation de Faust was presented in Japan in 1999 and in Paris in 2001, 2004 and 2006. For the 2008 revival at the MET, Robert Lepage and his team have taken this opportunity to revamp the projections by integrating interactive images generated by the artists’ movements and the signers’ voice.

There will be a second chance to see this presentation on Saturday, January 17, 2009.

Tickets are available on line at or directly at participating cinemas.
