TIMES AND TICKETS

MET Opera: Les Contes d’Hoffmann

  • Cast
  • Vittorio Grigolo
  • Director
  • Jacques Offenbach
  • Synopsis
  • The magnetic tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the tortured poet and
    unwitting adventurer of the title of Offenbach’s operatic
    masterpiece, in the Met’s wild, kaleidoscopic production. Soprano
    Hibla Gerzmava faces the operatic hurdle of singing all three
    heroines—each an idealized embodiment of some aspect of
    Hoffmann’s desire. Thomas Hampson portrays the shadowy Four
    Villains, and Yves Abel conducts the sparkling score.

MET Opera: Iolanta & Duke Bluebeard’s Castle

  • Cast
  • Anna Netrebko
  • Director
  • Mariusz Trelinski
  • Synopsis
  • On the heels of her triumphant Met performances in Eugene
    Onegin, soprano Anna Netrebko takes on another Tchaikovsky
    heroine in the first opera of this intriguing double bill, consisting of
    an enchanting fairy tale (Iolanta) followed by an erotic psychological
    thriller (Duke Bluebeard’s Castle). Netrebko stars as the beautiful
    blind girl who experiences love for the first time in Iolanta, while
    Nadja Michael is the unwitting victim of the diabolical Bluebeard,
    played by Mikhail Petrenko. Both operas are directed by Mariusz
    Trelinski, who was inspired by classic noir films of the 1940s.
    Iolanta also stars Piotr Beczala, and Valery Gergiev conducts both
    operas.

MET Opera: La Donna del Lago

  • Cast
  • Joyce DiDonato
  • Director
  • Gioacchino Rossini
  • Synopsis
  • Bel canto superstars Joyce DiDonato and Juan Diego Flórez join
    forces for this Rossini showcase of vocal virtuosity, set in the
    medieval Scottish highlands and based on a beloved novel by Sir
    Walter Scott. DiDonato is the “lady of the lake” of the title, and
    Flórez is the king who relentlessly pursues her, their vocal
    fireworks embellishing the romantic plot in this Met premiere
    production conducted by Michele Mariotti.

MET Opera: Cavalleria Rusticana & Pagliacci

  • Cast
  • Marcelo Álvarez
  • Director
  • Sir David McVicar
  • Synopsis
  • Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative
    new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action
    across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo
    Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of
    Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith
    (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village
    square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci.
    Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor
    Fabio Luisi is on the podium.
