Did you miss the Met’s Live in HD broadcasts courtesy of Fathom Events these past few summers? Still want to check out some HD broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera? Well, you have a chance to do just that, at the Met.

More like, right outside the Met, as the company will offer 10 free screenings in Lincoln Center Plaza from August 26 through Labor Day.

There will also be a screening of Ingmar Bergman’s famed “The Magic Flute” on August 25.

The first screening of the season, on August 26, will be Verdi’s “Rigoletto” which stars Diana Damrau, Piotr Beczala and Željko Lučić from 2013.

The next day, audiences will get a chance to do a re-run of “Il Barbiere di Siviglia” with Juan Diego Flórez and Joyce DiDonato from 2007.

Monday brings “L’Amour de Loin” from 2016 while Tuesday showcases Kristine Opolais and Roberto Alagna in a 2016 broadcast of “Manon Lescaut.”

A 2016 transmission of “Roberto Devereux,” with such stars as Sondra Radvanovsky, Elīna Garanča, Matthew Polenzani and Mariusz Kwiecien, light up the screens on Wednesday while the first act of “Tristan und Isolde” is the showcase on Thursday. The second and third acts will be screened on the following day.

Transmissions of “Eugene Onegin,” “Nabucco,” and “La Traviata” from 2017 close out the week-long opera fest.
