Mozart 's Don Giovanni
Saturday, October 22, 2016 ~ 10am
We follow the title character and his earthy comic sidekick, Leporello, through a series of encounters that begins with a fatal duel, moves back and forth between the humorous and the sentimental, and ends with the protagonist being dragged down to hell in a dazzling coup de théâtre.
The charismatic baritone Simon Keenlyside plays the title hero, opera's ultimate cad. The ensemble of great Mozartean singers includes Hibla Gerzmava, Malin Byström, Rolando Villazón, and KwangchulYoun. Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.
Gounod's Roméo et Juliette (New Production)
Saturday, January 21, 2017 ~ 10am
When Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo starred opposite each other in Manon at the Met in 2015, the New York Times said, "the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Damrau and Grigolo are on stage together." Now they're back as opera's classic lovers, in Gounod's lush Shakespeare adaptation. Bartlett Sher's new production has already won acclaim for its vivid 18thcentury milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the sumptuous score.
Verdi's La Traviata
Saturday, March 11, 2017 ~ 10am
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. Sonya Yoncheva sings one of opera's most beloved heroines, the tragic courtesan Violetta (considered a pinnacle of the soprano repertoire), a role in which she triumphed on the Met stage in 2015, opposite Michael Fabiano as her lover, Alfredo, and Thomas Hampson as his father, Germont. Nicola Luisotti conducts.
