NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Danielle de Niese says she nervous but excited about starring in a opera that will be broadcast live throughout the world.

De Niese stars in The Metropolitan Opera’s “Cosi Fan Tutte,” which opens at Lincoln Center on Saturday.

“It’s a story about sort of trying one’s faith in love,” de Niese told CBS 2’s Dana Tyler in an in-studio interview that aired Sunday.

“Cosi Fan Tutte,” a Mozart classic, will be broadcast live in high definition to 2,000 movie theaters around the globe at 12:55 p.m. local time Saturday.

“The reach of the Metropolitan Opera is just getting bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger,” de Niese said.

“It’s also very important that we give an opportunity to people who may never make a trip to New York to see what The Metropolitan Opera can do by bringing the opera to them,” the soprano added.
