ROCKLAND — Soprano Nadine Sierra takes on one of the repertory’s most formidable and storied roles, the haunted heroine of “Lucia di Lamermoor,” in broadcast presentations from the Metropolitan Opera at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., Saturday, June 18, and Tuesday, June 28. Showtimes are at 1 p.m.

“Lucia di Lamermoor” features an electrifying new staging by in-demand Australian theater and film director Simon Stone, and is conducted by Riccardo Frizza. Show-stopping tenor Javier Camarena adds to the bel canto fireworks as Lucia’s beloved, Edgardo, with baritone Artur Ruciński as her overbearing brother, Enrico, and bass Matthew Rose as her tutor, Raimondo. This cinema transmission is part of the Met’s award-winning Live in HD series, bringing opera to movie theaters across the globe.

Due to a scheduling conflict with the live transmission time of “Lucia di Lamermoor” on May 21, both Strand shows are encore presentations.

The estimated run time is 3 hours and 25 minutes, including two intermissions. Encore tickets are $23/Adults; $15/Strand Members; $5/Students 18 and younger, and college students with ID. All tickets are for reserved seats. For COVID safety, masks are required and audience capacity is reduced to 30%. To buy tickets or for more information, visit
