About The Event
Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Michael Mayer’s new production, featuring a richly textured 18th-century setting that changes with the seasons. The title role of the “fallen woman” has captured the imaginations of audiences and performers alike with its inexhaustible vocal and dramatic possibilities—and challenges. Violetta, the tragic heroine, is considered a pinnacle of the soprano repertoire and is captured by Diana Damrau. Tenor Juan Diego Flórez returns to the Met for the first time in five seasons to sing the role of Alfredo, Violetta’s hapless lover. Baritone Quinn Kelsey is Alfredo’s father, Germont, who destroys their love.
