The Metropolitan Opera presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès’s The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event,” The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. See it Saturday, Nov. 18, at 12:55 p.m. at the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors/students, and $10 for youths. Visit miac.mercyhurst.edu or call the box office at 814-824-3000 for tickets.
