After a week of thrilling ski competition on Aspen Mountain during the FIS Ski World Finals, it's time to seek thrills of a different nature. That's why you might enjoy a night at the Metropolitan Opera. If you can't make it to New York, you're in luck, because the Met is coming to you on Thursday, March 23 via a broadcast of the Met Live in HD. The Aspen Music Festival is presenting Romeo et Juliette by the French composer Gounod at 5:30 pm in the Wheeler Opera House. Prepare to be swept up in the production that was called "vivid" and full of "white-hot sensuality and impassioned lyricism." Wow! Who says opera is boring?
