Prepare to be mesmerised by this wonderfully magical ballet, recounting one of our most beloved fairytales, that of the cursed Princess Aurora, otherwise known as The Sleeping Beauty.

The ever enduring Don Giovanni returns to the Metropolitan Opera. Mozart's libertine philanderer is cast in a decidedly darker light in this staging, whose story of unavenged justice incorporates tragedy and black comedy, as well as the supernatural elements which ultimately downfall. Giovanni is no misunderstood hero in this production, which was created by acclaimed British director and producer Michael Grandage.

Metropolitan Opera: La Boheme

Metropolitan Opera House

September 28, 2016-January 14, 2017

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.
