The Mercyhurst Institute for Arts & Culture will be screening a broadcast of The Met: Live in HD featuring Nabucco at 12:55 p.m. Jan. 7. 

The performance will be held in the Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center. 

The storyline of Giuseppe Verdi's third opera is inspired by the Biblical tale of the fall of Jerusalem. Caused by the king of Babylon, Nabucco, this dramatic opera was in large part responsible for Verdi's popularity and fame in life. 

Pl├ícido Domingo and Liudmyla Monastyrska will be performing in the opera, as well as Jamie Barton and Dmitri Belosselskiy, all under the command of James Levine, who is serving as the conductor of this event. 

The box office for purchasing tickets will be open from noon to 5 p.m. and will be offering adult tickets for $18, senior and student admission for $15 and youth admission for $10.
