LIVE BROADCASTS


AIDA : Verdi
Thursday – 03/07/2019
Domingo; Radvanovsky, Petrova, Antonenko, Kelsey, Kocán, Howard

Final performance of this production on March 4 and 7 (numbers 246 and 247). ‘Then its weathered hieroglyphics, its applause-garnering live horses, its looming walls of craggy stone-esque plaster and its gold-sprayed props will all be sealed in storage, as securely as Aida and Radamès in their tomb at the opera’s end.’ [Woolfe, NYTIMES 3-1-2019]

When “Aida” returns, it will open the 2020-21 season in a new production directed by Michael Mayer and designed by Christine Jones, the pair that updated the Met’s “Rigoletto” to 1960s Las Vegas. Yannick Nézet-Séguin will conduct a starry cast: Anna Netrebko, Anita Rachvelishvili, Piotr Beczala and Ludovic Tézier.


DAS RHEINGOLD : Wagner
Saturday – 03/09/2019
Jordan; Harmer, Barton, Cargill, Ernst, Siegel,
Grimsley, Konieczny, Groissböck, Belosselskiy

Wagner’s visionary initial installment of the Ring Cycle depicts the original sin of the theft of the sacred golden treasure, the vanity of the gods, the greed of the Nibelungen, the fratricide of the giants, and the building of Valhalla. Bass-baritone Greer Grimsley and baritone Michael Volle share the role of Wotan, the conflicted lord of the gods. Mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton sings her first Wagner role at the Met as Wotan’s embattled wife, Fricka.
In collaboration with Ex Machina
