Admission is free. Reservations required.


To enter the USC campus, all guests age 12 and older must show proof of full vaccination (either a physical CDC-issued vaccine card or a digital copy available from the State of California here). As an alternative, guests may show a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken in the past 72 hours. Photo ID required. All persons accessing must also complete Trojan Check, USC’s daily wellness assessment, on the day of their visit. Medical grade masks (surgical masks, N95, KN95, or KF94) are required for all attendees, vaccinated or unvaccinated, at indoor events.

Experience award-winning opera as you’ve never seen it before—larger than life with better-than-front-row angles, glorious sound, and exclusive access behind the scenes. This live cinema transmission is part of The Metropolitan Opera’s award-winning Live in HD series, bringing performances from New York City to audiences across the globe with the finest artists and newest technology.

Tony Award–winning director Bartlett Sher resets Verdi’s tragic opera in 1920s Europe, with Art Deco sets by Michael Yeargan and elegant costumes by Catherine Zuber, themselves boasting a combined 11 Tony Awards. In this bold new take, baritone Quinn Kelsey, a commanding artist at the height of his powers, brings his searing portrayal of the title role to the Met for the first time, starring alongside soprano Rosa Feola as Gilda and tenor Piotr Beczala as the Duke of Mantua, with leading maestro Daniele Rustioni on the podium.

Presented by USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative. Organized by the USC School of Cinematic Arts in conjunction with the USC Thornton School of Music and the Metropolitan Opera.
