Attend The Met's Production---in Brookfield!

Yah, hey, dere...pop a brewski and settle in for Romeo et Juliette. Please, no power-burps!

The Metropolitan Opera is coming to nearly two dozen Marcus Corp. theaters under an agreement with a national presenter of live and prerecorded alternative entertainment events.

The agreement with National CineMedia L.L.C. will bring live digital broadcasts of The Metropolitan Opera performances to Marcus theaters in Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Chicago, Columbus, Ohio, and other markets. Local movie theaters joining the network are Marcus Majestic Cinema in Brookfield, North Shore Cinemas in Mequon, Renaissance Cinema in Sturtevant and South Shore Cinemas in Oak Creek.

The debut events planned for presentation in participating Marcus Theatres will be "The Metropolitan Opera: Live in HD" series, with the next performance Dec. 15 of "Roméo et Juliette. .... Ticket sales to the general public begin Nov. 9.

See the ORIGINAL 'Fat Lady Sings' stuff. Pretend she's Juliette.

So how much popcorn and beer do you stock for a Ring Cycle?

This should be of some interest to the MSO, as well--who might benefit from a live, national broadcast series, particularly in facilities with the equipment of a Majestic.
