The bustling An American in Paris, inspired by Gershwin’s 1926 trip to the French capital, conveys all the frenetic energy of a cosmopolitan city in its interwar heyday. It’s the finale of this Sunday afternoon concert with Levine and his MET Orchestra, who are also joined by mezzo-soprano Christine Rice and pianist Richard Goode.
Since his Met debut in 1971, Maestro Levine has collaborated with countless great singers, expanded the Met repertory in extraordinary ways, and launched the MET Orchestra’s annual concert series at Carnegie Hall, among other major milestones. Over the course of his four decades with the Met, Levine has elevated the quality of the orchestra, chorus, and ensemble to the highest level in the company’s history.
