Metropolitan Opera House

Until March 9, 2017

The irresistible tale of unrequited love unfolds tragically in Jules Massenet's lushly scored opera, based on Goethe's semi-autobiographical novel 'The Sorrows of Young Wether'. Sorrows they truly are as the brooding poet falls for the betrothed Charlotte and is driven to the brink of life itself when he realises his chance at winning her is ultimately doomed. Isabel Lenard stars as Charlotte, alongside Vittorio Grigolo as Wether, conducted by Edward Gardner.

New York City Ballet: Rodgers' Broadway To Ballet

David H Koch Theater

Until February 26, 2017

Fall for the magic of Broadway and under the spell of iconic composer Richard Rodgers in this three piece program honoring what would have been his 115th birthday. A powerhouse of the early days of musical theatre, Rodgers defined the genre with delightfully witty and romantic scores, taking the audience on madcap adventures full od daring feats, glamorous cafes and of course, unforgettable love stories. This triple bill sees works created in response from Christopher Wheeldon, Peter Martins and of course, NYCB patriarch George Balanchine.

Metropolitan Opera: La Traviata

Metropolitan Opera House

Until March 14, 2017

Willy Decker's inspiring, "grippingly spare, almost surreal" production returns to the Met Opera! The action is now brought forward to the 1950s, complete with swing dresses and magnums of champagne! Can a consumptive courtesan and a naive nobleman find love together? Or will the fates (and his family) strive to keep them apart?

Metropolitan Opera: Idomeneo

Metropolitan Opera House

March 6-25, 2017

Accompany the Metropolitan Opera on a journey back to Ancient Greece, to a land of gods and monsters, where love is almost always complicated by fate, envy or the supernatural!

Metropolitan Opera: Fidelio

Metropolitan Opera House

March 16-April 8, 2017

Beethoven's only opera fizzes with heroism, sweeping you up in the story and glorious score. An ode to freedom, justice and liberty, Fidelio is the tale of Leonore, a determined woman who creates a daring plan to free her husband from secret imprisonment. Originally set in 18th century Seville, the Met brings the story into the present, strengthening the opera's original uplifting themes and ideals for a 21st century audience.
