Since 2012, Albert Lea Civic Music and Albert Lea Community Theatre (ACT) have partnered to bring the Metropolitan Opera’s stunning series of award-winning, live, high-definition transmissions to Albert Lea. Each broadcast from New York City is produced with at least 10 cameras, meaning there are multiple points of view.
