Sedona News – The Mary D. Fisher Theatre is honored to continue to be the home for the Met Live Opera programs for the 2022-2023 season, presented by the Sedona International Film Festival. The season continues with Giuseppe Verdi’s “Falstaff” live via simulcast on Saturday, April 1 at 9:30 a.m. and the encore presentation on Wednesday, April 5 at 3 p.m.
Plan to come early as John Steinbrunner will lead a pre-opera talk one hour before the LIVE production on Saturday.

Maestro Daniele Rustioni takes the podium to oversee a brilliant ensemble cast that features sopranos Hera Hyesang Park Ailyn Pe´rez, mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano, contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux, tenor Bogdan Volkov, and baritone Christopher Maltman.
