The Arthur Rubinstein Philharmonic in £ód¼, central Poland, was one of 600 venues worldwide where opera lovers could watch a live broadcast of a new production of Giuseppe Verdi's Macbeth, directed by Adrian Noble and starring baritone Zelijko Lucic in the title role, as it was performed at the New York Metropolitan Opera Jan. 12.

Later this year the £ód¼ Philharmonic will host five more New York Metropolitan Opera productions that will be shown on a 66-square-meter screen here, including Benjamin Britten's Peter Grimes on March 15, and Gaetano Donizetti's La Fille du régiment on April 26. There will also be two operas by Giacomo Puccini, Manon Lescaut on Feb. 16, and La Bohéme on April 5, and the series will end with Richard Wagner's Tristan and Isolde on May 17. Andrzej Su³ek, general manager of the philharmonic, said he was working to bring Metropolitan Opera stars to perform in £ód¼ in person.

The first Metropolitan Opera: Live in High Definition broadcast was held on Dec. 30, 2006, drawing an audience of 30,000 in 150 venues across the United States to see Mozart's The Magic Flute.
