Running Time: 3hrs

Synopsis: The great Renée Fleming stars as the beguiling femme fatale who captivates all Paris in Lehár’s enchanting operetta, seen in a new staging by Broadway virtuoso director and choreographer Susan Stroman (The Producers, Oklahoma!, Contact). Stroman and her design team of Julian Crouch (Satyagraha, The Enchanted Island) and costume designer William Ivey Long (Cinderella, Grey Gardens, Hairspray) have created an art-nouveau setting that climaxes with singing and dancing grisettes at the legendary Maxim’s. Nathan Gunn co-stars as Danilo and Kelli O’Hara is Valencienne. Andrew Davis conducts.

 

Conductor: Andrew Davis/ Fabio Luisi

Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann 

German w/English subtitles

Sat, Jan 31, 2015 @10:00

Running Time: 3hrs45

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.

 

Conductor: James Levine/Yves Abel
Featuring: Vittorio Grigolo, Hibla Gerzmava, Kate Lindsey, Thomas Hampson

Sat, Feb 14, 2015 @9:30

Running Time: 3hrs40

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.

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.

Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana

Sat, Apr 25, 2015 @9:30

Running Time: 3hrs30

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.

Metropolitan Opera Clears Last Major Hurdle in Labor Talks

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/21/arts/music/metropolitan-opera-labor-talks.html

The Metropolitan Opera and the union representing its stage hands reached a contract deal early Wednesday morning, clearing the last major hurdle before the company could go ahead with its coming season of operas featuring jealous lovers, dying sopranos, and a fellow named Figaro — both before and after his marriage.

The Met’s management, whose demand for concessions sparked the worst labor strife at the opera house in decades, abandoned its threat to lock out workers just over a month before the opening of the opera season once the deal was struck. The agreement was reached at about 3:15 a.m., following a marathon bargaining session extended past a deadline of midnight Tuesday.

The Met said that the agreement prevented “a potential labor crisis at the nation’s largest performing arts organization.” It added that “preseason rehearsals and preparations for the 2014-15 season will continue without interruption.
