Hear Arturo Toscanini and Sir Thomas Beecham conducting music they never commercially released, Igor Stravinsky conducting Glinka and talking about it, violinists Fritz Kreisler and Jan Kubelik, live opera from the Salzburg Festival and the Metropolitan Opera in the 1930s, and much more.

19.00-20.30 Met Opera in HD screening of Pagliacci
Walter Reade Theater of the Film Society of Lincoln Center
Leoncavallo's Pagliacci returned to the Met this spring in an acclaimed new production by Sir David McVicar, as part of a double bill with Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana. McVicar and set designer Rae Smith (War Horse) set the action of Pagliacci in a truck stop in a Sicilian village in 1949, where the romantic dramas of a doomed vaudeville troupe play out. Marcelo Álvarez stars as Canio, the murderous clown, opposite Patricia Racette as his unfaithful wife, Nedda, and George Gagnidze as Tonio. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium. Please join us for this special screening from the Met's award-winning Live in HD series – coming to Met Opera on Demand: Student Access later this year.
