La Clemenza di Tito at Carib 5
Elina Garanca, star of the Live in HD transmissions of Carmen and La Cenerentola, returns to the Met as Sesto in a rare revival of Mozart's opera of ancient Rome, La Clemenza di Tito. It shows at the Carib 5, Cross Roads, St Andrew, tomorrow at 12:55 p.m. Italian tenor Giuseppe Filianoti makes his first Live in HD appearance in the title role of the Roman emperor Titus, the target of an assassination scheme by the vengeful Vitellia (Barbara Frittoli, star of last season's Don Giovanni).

American mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey and debuting English soprano Lucy Crowe co-star as the young lovers Annio and Servilia in this performance of Jean-Pierre Ponnelle's stylised 1984 production, which will be conducted by baroque specialist Harry Bicket.

Mezzo-soprano Susan Graham hosts the transmission and conducts backstage interviews with the stars.
