The Met, in Metrowest

REGION

It's been two decades since the Metropolitan Opera toured to Boston, and the company is coming back, sort of. The Met just announced an intriguing plan to simulcast performances from New York into movie theaters across the country. And a Met spokesman said that there are plans to broadcast in two local theaters: The Framingham 16 and the Solomon Pond Mall 15 in Marlborough.

Details on these showings could come as early as next week.

"Clearly, a movie performance is not the same as a live performance," Met spokesman Peter Clark told us. "But this is still a way for the Met to get its product out there to millions of people in the
world."

And, unlike in the opera hall in New York City, you can buy popcorn.
