Among the top-line live screenings scheduled for the Uckfield Picture House are popular classics, Puccini’s La Boheme and Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte.

As part of The Met:Live in HD series of live performances on screen, La Boheme is the most performed opera in the Met’s history and has been staged more than 1,200 times since its first performance at the house in 1900, only four years after it was first heard in Italy. La Boheme is directed by Franco Zeffirelli and will be screened in Uckfield on April 5.

Next, the Met’s legendary music director James Levine will conduct Cosi fan tutte for HD audiences. When the Met’s Music Director, James Levine, returned to the podium in September 2013 after a two year hiatus, Così fan tutte was his opera of choice. This opera will be screened in Uckfield on April 26 as part of a programme which is scheduled for 175 cinemas across the UK. Both performances begin at 5.55pm.
