The sound of the bullerengue drum has reverberated from the distant memories of the first migrations of African people across the region of San Juan de Urabá, Colombia. Full of emotion, sorrow, and joy, this ancestral music is the oldest African musical tradition in Colombia, and singer and tambolero Emilsen Pacheco Blanco is considered one of the genre’s leading exponents. Tonight, he’ll be joined by the 13-person New York–based bullerengue collective Bulla en el Barrio, led by Carolina Oliveros.

Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Free no tickets required

When

8:00pm

The ninth Summer HD Festival features nine thrilling performances from the Met’s Live in HD series of cinema transmissions—plus a special pre-festival screening of Ingmar Bergman’s classic 1975 film version of Mozart’s The Magic Flute. The festival runs from August 26 through September 4, with more than 3,000 seats set up in front of the opera house each night, as well as additional standing room around Lincoln Center Plaza. Director Ingmar Bergman was a lifelong fan of Mozart’s late operatic masterpiece Die Zauberflöte (“The Magic Flute”), having seen the work as a young boy. He went on to create a cinematic version of the opera, sung in his native Swedish, that blends 18th-century stagecraft with fairy-tale adventure. For the film, maestro Eric Ericson conducted the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and a cast that included a number of young Scandinavian artists, most notably baritone Håkan Hagegård—who sang nearly 90 performances for Met audiences—as the charming bird catcher Papageno. A co-presentation of the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Opera. Approximate running time: 2 hours 15 minutes
