Classic Quadrophenia

Metropolitan Opera House

September 9-10, 2017

The Who's windmilling guitarist brings his symphonic arrangement of the 1973 album to the US this summer for four very special dates that will feature Billy Idol, Alfie Boe and a full orchestra performing the expansive rock opera in all its glory. A full narrative story, Quadrophenia follows the story of a young working class Mod, Jimmy, and his search for meaning amongst the culture clash of 1960s Britain and was influential in reviving Mod culture, leading to the iconic film in 1979.

Metropolitan Opera: Norma

Metropolitan Opera House

September 25-December 16, 2017

After finding herself raised up to the level of some of the genre's most celebrated singers on her 2013 debut in the role, Sondra Radvanovsky returns to the Met as Bellini's iconic high-priestess, one of the most ambitious parts in the soprano repertoire. This explosive new production by Sir David McVicar opens the Met's 2017/18 season.

Metropolitan Opera: Turandot

Metropolitan Opera House

October 12, 2017-April 5, 2018

Sworn against love by the death of her mother, proud Princess Turandot prefers watching her suitors meet a grisly end and having their heads placed on spikes at the palace gates, yet they still vie to win her hand. When Calaf takes up the challenge, the unattainable beauty may have met her match in this lavish spectacle and final masterpiece from Puccini.

Metropolitan Opera - The Exterminating Angel

Metropolitan Opera House

October 26-November 21, 2017

Much anticipated on these shores since its storming debut at the 2016 Salzburg Festival, the Met present the American premiere of Thomas Ades' dizzying new work. Adapted from the surreal Luis Bunel film of the same name, The Exterminating Angel concerns a fantastical dinner party in a mansion from which the guests cannot escape. Ades' conducts his kaleidoscopic score as chaos descends on the ensemble cast as their strange incarceration leads to madness.
