Metropolitan Opera: Carmen at the Metropolitan Opera House, New York

Metropolitan Opera: Carmen

Now showing

The Met's hit production of Bizet's Carmen returns with two of its leading ladies, Anita Rachvelishvili and Elina Garanca! Anita Rachvelishvili made a sensational Met debut in 2010 as the feisty and seductive gypsy. An agent provocatrix, Carmen lures a young soldier away from his innocent betrothed Micaela, and toys with his emotions as she frequently withdraws her affections and flirts with other men, driving Jose wild with jealousy. Not one to be tied down to love, she is determined to live freely, love freely - and to die freely.

The Met's unforgettable production of Verdi's ancient Egyptian drama stars Liudmyla Monastyrska once again, alongside Latonia Moore, and Oksana Dykand.

Metropolitan Opera: Don Giovanni at the Metropolitan Opera House, New York

Metropolitan Opera: Don Giovanni

Now showing

The ever enduring Don Giovanni returns to the Metropolitan Opera, sung by Peter Mattei. The libertine philanderer is giving a decidedly darker role as a sexual predator and potential rapist as the story of unavenged justice incorporates tragedy with black comedy as well as the supernatural elements at the end which causes his downfall. Giovanni is no misunderstood hero in this production, which was created by acclaimed British director and producer, Michael Grandage.

Metropolitan Opera: Cavalleria Rusticana / Pagliacci at the Metropolitan Opera House, New York

Metropolitan Opera: Cavalleria Rusticana / Pagliacci

From 14 Apr 2015

The Met Opera presents a double bill of operas - Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni and Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo. This pair of exciting new productions created by Sir David McVicar will see esteemed tenor Marcelo Alvarez perform the lead role in both works. Arguably the most tragic of operatic works, the two operas are both set in Sicily, with Cavalleria Rusticana set in a rustic village square in 1900, whilst Pagliacci is brought forward to a 1940s truck stop in the same area. Jealousy and betrayal are the common denominators, along with the Sicilian setting.
