Opera breakthrough or humongous screen saver?
It was fun to see the first performance of the new Metropolitan Opera production of “La Damnation de Faust” last Friday night – French Canadian director Robert Lepage made his debut at the august Manhattan institution with a multimedia approach that clearly divided the house …. You can make up your own mind about this “Faust” without traveling into Manhattan. Saturday’s matinee performance is being presented as part of the live Met HD transmission series at 1 p.m. at Fairfield University’s Quick Center for the Arts. There will be an encore HD showing at 7 p.m. at the Quick.
