LONDON (AP) - The English National Opera and Sky will televise what they say is the first live opera broadcast in 3-D on Feb. 23, a new production of Donizetti’s “Lucrezia Borgia.”

The 3-D telecast will be shown live in theaters around Britain and on Sky 3-D, with a 2-D simulcast on Sky Arts 2. The 2-D version will be shown later in theaters outside Britain, the ENO said Saturday. In addition, interviews about the production will be televised on Sky Arts 1.

The production, directed by Mike Figgis, opens Jan. 31 and stars soprano Claire Rutter in the title role, American tenor Michael Fabiano as Gennaro, mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong as Maffio Orsini and bass Alastair Miles as Alfonso d’Este. Paul Daniel conducts.
