Met Opera

Dates: 2nd September - 12th May 2020

The Met: Live in HD, the Metropolitan Opera’s award-winning series of live high-definition cinema simulcasts, will begin its 14th season on 12th October, with the Met’s production of Puccini’s Turandot, starring Christine Goerke in the title role, led by the Met’s Jeanette Lerman-Newbaurer Music Director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

The 2019–20 Live in HD season features ten transmissions, including five new productions: the Met premiere of Philip Glass’s groundbreaking 20th-century opera Akhnaten, starring Anthony Roth Costanzo as the title pharaoh, conducted by Karen Kamensek; Peter Mattei in the title role of Berg’s Wozzeck, in a new staging by acclaimed visual artist and stage director William Kentridge, conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin; a new production of the Gershwins’ classic American opera Porgy and Bess, last performed at the Met in 1990, starring Eric Owens and Angel Blue, directed by James Robinson and conducted by David Robertson; the Met premiere of Handel’s Agrippina, starring Joyce DiDonato in a contemporary staging by Sir David McVicar that promises to resonate with modern audiences; and a new take on Wagner’s Der Fliegende Holländer, starring Sir Bryn Terfel in the title role.

In addition to Turandot and the five new productions, Live in HD audiences will have the chance to see Massenet’s lush French masterpiece Manon; the return of Anthony Minghella’s inspired vision of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, with Plácido Domingo as Sharpless; Anna Netrebko in the title role of Puccini’s Tosca; and Diana Damrau and Jamie Barton as the dueling queens of Maria Stuarda, the second opera of Donizetti’s Tudor trilogy.
