Description: Don't miss the exclusive addition to the Metropolitan Opera's acclaimed Live in HD series--"The Audition"--in movie theatres nationwide for a one-day event on Sunday, April 19 at 3 p.m. ET / 12 noon PT. Hosted by star soprano Renée Fleming, this event features the new documentary "The Audition," a backstage look at the intense pressures young opera singers face as they struggle to succeed in one of the most difficult professions in the performing arts, followed by a panel discussion moderated by Fleming, with fellow National Council winners Susan Graham and Thomas Hampson, filmed on location at the Met. The panelists reminisce about their own past participation in the competition and talk about how the experience was instrumental in launching their own international careers. This program is not rated but should be treated as PG.
