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 the world premiere of Kevin Puts’s “The Hours” live via simulcast on Saturday, Dec. 10 at 11 a.m. and the encore presentation on Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 3 p.m.

Soprano Reneìe Fleming makes her highly anticipated return to the Met in the world-premiere production of Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Kevin Puts’s “The Hours”, adapted from Michael Cunningham’s acclaimed novel.
Inspired by Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway and made a household name by the Oscar-winning 2002 film version starring Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, and Nicole Kidman, the powerful story follows three women from different eras who each grapple with their inner demons and their roles in society.
The exciting premiere radiates with star power with Kelli O’Hara and Joyce DiDonato joining Fleming as the opera’s trio of heroines. Phelim McDermott directs this compelling drama, with Met Music Director Yannick Neìzet-Seìguin on the podium to conduct Puts’s poignant and powerful score.
