Metropolitan Opera: Turandot

Metropolitan Opera House

Until January 30, 2016

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: Anna Bolena

Metropolitan Opera House

Until January 9, 2016

This emotionally powerful opera depicts the last days of Anne Boleyn, the doomed second wife of England's heir-mad King Henry VIII. As his attention in his wife wains, her last days at court are numbered as he prepares the altar for his mistress and Anne's friend and confidant Jane Seymour. Defiant, but increasingly delusional as a fatal plot is cooked up against her.

Metropolitan Opera: La Boheme

Metropolitan Opera House

Until May 5, 2016

Franco Zefferelli presents a magnificent cast starring Angela Gheorghiu as the frail Mimi, with Ramon Vargas taking on the role of her passionate lover, Rodolfo in his iconic production of this Puccini favorite. Innovative young conductor Nicola Luisotti oversees a glorious vocal ensemble that proves once again why this opera is the most performed at the Met.

NYCB: The Nutcracker

David H Koch Theater

November 27, 2015-January 3, 2016

This is the production that is the heart of New York City's year-end holiday season. Whether it is a family tradition or a once-in-a-lifetime visit, your experience of this glittering classic ballet will stay with you forever and warm your spirit! A lavish, full-scale spectacle, there's a reason this is the City's favourite holiday show!

Metropolitan Opera: The Barber of Seville

Metropolitan Opera House

December 16, 2015-January 2, 2016

The Met Opera will stage Rossini's The Barber of Seville in English for the first time ever this Christmas. Performed countless times by the company before in its original Italian, a more family friendly staging was thought more appropriate for this festive season.
