Set in ancient Egypt and packed with magnificent choruses, complex ensembles, and elaborate ballets, Aida features an epic backdrop for an intimate love story. Few operas have matched Aida in its exploration of love and duty, and perhaps no other has remained to the present day so unanimously appreciated by audiences and critics alike. In the highlight of the season, soprano Anna Netrebko sings her first Met Aida, going toe-to-toe with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili as Amneris. Tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko plays the role of Radamès, and Nicola Luisotti takes the podium for the Met’s monumental production.
Saint-Saëns’ Samson and Dalila
November 8, 2018 at 7PM
When mezzo-soprano Elina Garanca and tenor Roberto Alagna joined forces for a new production of Carmen at the Met, the results were electrifying. Now this star duo reunites for another sensual French opera in the title roles of Saint-Saëns’s biblical epic Samson and Dalila. Tony Award-winning director Darko Tresnjak makes his Met debut with a vivid and seductive production—the first new staging in 20 years. Sir Mark Elder conducts.
Puccini’s The Girl of the Golden West
December 13, 2018 at 7PM
Puccini’s American opera is set in the wild west of the California Gold Rush, and the title character is one of the composer’s most appealing heroines—a strong, independent woman determined to win the man she loves. Soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek is Puccini’s gun-slinging girl and tenor Jonas Kaufmann makes a heralded return to the Met stage as the outlaw she loves. Baritone Zeljko Lucic is the vigilante sheriff Jack Rance, and Marco Armiliato conducts.
Verdi’s La Traviata
January 10, 2019 at 7PM
Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Michael Mayer’s new production, featuring an 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. 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.
Cilea’s Adriana Lecouvreur
February 14, 2019 at 7PM
Soprano Anna Netrebko joins the ranks of Renata Tebaldi, Montserrat Caballé, and Renata Scotto, taking on—for the first time at the Met—the title role of the real-life French actress who dazzled 18th-century audiences with her on- and offstage passion. The soprano is joined by tenor Piotr Beczala as Adriana’s lover, Maurizio. The principal cast also features mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili and baritone Ambrogio Maestri. Gianandrea Noseda conducts Sir David McVicar’s staging, which sets the action in a working replica of a Baroque theater.
March 14, 2019 at 7PM
Bizet’s masterpiece of the gypsy seductress who lives by her own rules has had an impact far beyond the opera house. The opera’s melodic sweep is as irresistible as the title character herself, a force of nature who has become a defining female cultural figure. Mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine reprises her remarkable portrayal of opera’s ultimate seductress, a triumph in her 2017 debut performances, with impassioned tenor Roberto Alagna as her lover, Don José. Louis Langrée conducts Sir Richard Eyre’s powerful production, a Met favorite since its 2009 premiere.
Donizetti’s The Daughter of the Regiment
April 11, 2019 at 7PM
This frothy comedy mixes humor with a rush of buoyant melody and notorious vocal challenges. The story concerns a young orphan girl raised by an army regiment as their mascot and begins at the moment of her first stirrings of love. Complications (and comedy) ensue when her true identity is discovered. Tenor Javier Camarena and soprano Pretty Yende team up for a feast of bel canto vocal fireworks—including the show-stopping tenor aria “Ah! Mes amis,” with its nine high Cs. Maurizio Muraro is the comic Sergeant Sulpice and mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe is the outlandish Marquise of Berkenfield. Enrique Mazzola conducts.
