Off With Her Head: Live-casting the Anna Bolena Premiere.

Anna Netrebko as Anna Bolena. 

6:09 pm:Hi folks and welcome to the live blog of tonight's Anna Bolena at the Metropolitan Opera House. I'll be doing the same thing as last season, following the live broadcast and updating throughout the evening. Hope you all enjoy Anna Bolena which you can listen to here.
6:11pm:
Deborah Voigt interviewing Fabio Luisi on the red carpet in the pre-game show. Asking about the Don Giovanni and welcoming him to the Met family.
6:16pm:
William Berger talking about the new start times: 7:30pm Eastern Time is the new early start time. Got to get the audience home to Long Island and Westchester. So get to the theater on time or you'll watch the opera in List Hall. Now onto the three Russians singing the leads in the new Anna Bolena. Now WB is running down the season of HD broadcasts. Hope he read my preview.
6:18pm: 
Deborah Voigt interviewing Tyne Daly (Maria Callas in the revival of Master Class on Broadway).
6:23pm
DV talks to Enchanted Island designer Julian Crouch. Frighteningly good cast and hope it's better than it sounds. Plot is A Midsummer Night's Dream's lovers walking into the island of The Tempest. Would be better if it were Zerbinetta and Arlecchino added to the show to get it done before the fireworks go off.
6:26pm 
Pre-recorded featurette with Anna Bolena costume designer.
6:30pm 
Summing up the plot of Act I it's getting ready for game time. I've got £10 on the mezzo. Orchestra warming up.

Plot analysis as they wait for the show to start.
