Why See The Met Orchestra?
Kissin and Flemming Kick Off New Season
The world renowned Met Orchestra is back! Under the guidance of Music Director James Levine, they'll be showcasing an incredibly diverse repertoire featuring Evgeny Kissin tickling the ivories (rather powerfully) in Rachmaninoff's thrilling Piano Concerto No.2, enchanting soprano Renee Fleming performing a programme of Strauss' works and soprano Christine Goerke and tenor Johan Botha in excerpts from Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen.
Since his Met debut in 1971, Maestro Levine has collaborated with countless great singers, expanded the Met repertory in extraordinary ways, and launched the MET Orchestra’s annual concert series at Carnegie Hall, among other major milestones. Over the course of his four decades with the Met, Levine has elevated the quality of the orchestra, chorus, and ensemble to the highest level in the company's history.
