Plot Synopsis
In 1930's Austria, a young woman named Maria is failing miserably in her attempts to become a nun. When the Navy captain Georg Von Trapp writes to the convent asking for a governess that can handle his seven mischievous children, Maria is given the job. The Captain's wife is dead, and he is often away, and runs the household as strictly as he does the ships he sails on. The children are unhappy and resentful of the governesses that their father keeps hiring, and have managed to run each of them off one by one. When Maria arrives, she is initially met with the same hostility, but her kindness, understanding, and sense of fun soon draws them to her and brings some much-needed joy into all their lives -- including the Captain's. Eventually he and Maria find themselves falling in love, even though Georg is already engaged to a Baroness and Maria is still a postulant. The romance makes them both start questioning the decisions they have made. Their personal conflicts soon become overshadowed, however, by world events. Austria is about to come under the control of Germany, and the Captain may soon find himself drafted into the German navy and forced to fight against his own country.

Plot Synopsis
Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar (Giulio Cesare, Maria Stuarda, Il Trovatore), who sets the verismo action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian setting.

Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria Rusticana, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) play the unlucky heroines. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.

RiffTrax Live: Miami Connection
Thu 10/01/2015

Plot Synopsis
If you put everything about the 80s in a blender, then somehow ran the resulting smoothie through a translator that only speaks languages from another dimension, what you’d wind up with still wouldn't be half as hilarious, weird, and oddly charming as Miami Connection. It’s 1987 and motorcycle ninjas trafficking cocaine are making life difficult in Florida. Who can stop them? The obvious answer, of course: a rock band called Dragon Sound who all know martial arts, led by a 9th degree Taekwondo black belt (played by Y.K. Kim, actual black belt who also co-wrote & co-directed the movie and does a little motivational speaking on the side). They all live together in a big house and perform songs with intimidating titles like “Friends.” Seriously, the scene where they perform “Friends” is not to be missed. And there’s so much more to love! We didn’t even mention the subplot about one of the guys saving up to buy a suit! One thing’s for sure: if anyone’s gonna shut down the Miami drug trade with the power of friendship and surprisingly intense martial arts, it’s these guys. Impossible to explain but also impossible to forget. Bring all your friends to rock against the ninjas with Mike, Kevin, and Bill, live in theaters nationwide!

Thu 12/03/2015

Plot Synopsis
One of the strangest Christmas movies ever made, Santa and The Ice Cream Bunny defies logic, reason, and we believe several laws of physics. Santa’s sleigh is stuck on the beach, and only one creature can help him: The Ice Cream Bunny! Unfortunately, the fire truck that the Ice Cream Bunny drives needs repairs, so he’ll be a little late coming from Pirates World, the run-down theme park that he lives in. We’d like to take this moment to remind, that yes, this is a real movie that people actually made. Never fear though, because Santa has a great story to pass the time: the tale of Thumbelina. Marvel as this beloved fairy tale is warped into something resembling Frozen starring an all-inmate cast with the production values of a crime re-enactment from a 90s episode of Unsolved Mysteries. Co-starring a pig, a sweltering man in a gorilla suit, paper mache birds, soiled Santa costumes, and several pervy moles, Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny is one of the most popular RiffTrax titles of all time and a bonafide holiday classic. Mike, Kevin, and Bill are delighted to inflict, er, Present it live for the very first time!

Plot Synopsis
In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. “In the Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.
