The Met Live in HD at Unicaribe Cancun Opera Season Begins in the Riviera Maya
Enjoy an evening of classical music in paradise!
It’s not every day that we get to spend a night at the opera in the Riviera Maya; that’s why we’re so excited for The Metropolitan Opera’s 2017-2018 season of The Met Live in HD, which features live satellite transmissions of 10 operas on the same opening night as New York!
The Met: Live in HD can be seen on more than 2,000 screens in over 70 countries around the world, including more than a dozen locations throughout Mexico.
Universidad del Caribe (Unicaribe), located just north of downtown Cancun and about an hour's drive from Playa del Carmen, will be the Live in HD international viewing location for our area. All 10 operas will be simulcast live on the big screen in their original format with Spanish subtitles.
