The Metropolitan Opera's Nightly Met Streams series continues, kicking off its 16th week since the coronavirus-caused shutdown with a virtual presentation of La Fille du Régiment. Pretty Yende and Javier Camarena headline the bel canto showpiece, with Tony and Oscar nominee Kathleen Turner making a (non-singing) cameo as the Duchess of Krakenthorp.

Turner's not the only Broadway alum in the new lineup either. A 2013 performance of the Shostakovich satire The Nose will air online July 1, with Tony winner Paulo Szot (South Pacific) as Kovalyov, a Russian aristocrat whose nose goes missing.

The free streams are available starting at 7:30 PM ET each night at for 23 hours each.
