Lakeside Little Theatre hosts the Met Live screening of La Rondine, Saturday and Sunday, May 4 and 5, at 4 p.m. Puccini’s bittersweet love story is presented with soprano Angel Blue starring as the French courtesan Magda, opposite tenor Jonathan Tetelman in his company debut as Ruggero, an idealistic young man who offers her an alternative to her life of excess. Maestro Speranza Scappucci conducts Nicolas Joël’s Art Deco–inspired staging, which transports audiences from the heart of Parisian nightlife to a dreamy vision of the French Riviera. Soprano Emily Pogorelc and tenor Bekhzod Davronov—both making their Met debuts—complete the cast as Lisette and Prunier. Time: 4 hours.
