July 29, 2009|David No

It looks as if L.A. residents who want to experience Esa-Pekka Salonen's much-anticipated debut at the Metropolitan Opera in November are going to have to buy a plane ticket to New York.

The opera company said it won't broadcast Leoif $Capital { return "Š" } else { return "š" } Janaeek's "From the House of the Dead" to movie theaters as part of its "Live in HD" series, nor are there plans to tape it for PBS' "Great Performances" series.

Salonen, who is ending his tenure as the L.A. Philharmonic's music director, is scheduled to conduct the opera for seven performances in New York starting Nov. 12.

The Met said there will be a radio broadcast of the opera that will air locally on KUSC-FM (91.5), but not until March 20.
