Metropolitan Opera: The Exterminating Angel

Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Following the rapturous response to his last opera, The Tempest, the Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès’s The *Exterminating Angel*, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the *New York Times *at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event,” *The Exterminating Angel *is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera.
