One of Richard Wagner's massive operas is unleashed on the Century 13 big screen, live from the Metropolitan Opera performance in New York by digital satellite broadcast. The innovative program brings major works from the Met Opera to small cities and towns, putting them within reach of the rest of us. This weekend, Wagner's most "Wagnerian" Tristan und Isolde unfolds; at three acts and 5 1/2 hours, it's a major commitment. But this number is one of the pinnacles of opera on so many levels, and it rewards those hearty enough to tackle it. [WR]
