Until April 27, 2019

Verdi's heartbreaking classic gets a brand new staging for the Met's 2018/19 season courtesy of Michael Mayer. Back to the 18th Century after 2017's 1950's setting, the sweeping tale of love set against the backdrop of a decadent Paris will play out against a stunning set that changes with the season, illustrating the fleeting nature of Violetta and Alfredo's doomed, but exquisitely beautiful romance.

Metropolitan Opera - Rigoletto

Until May 10, 2019

Director Michael Mayer's hit production of Verdi's powerful tragedy sees 1500s Mantua replaced by a seedy and gaudy Las Vegas in 1960 - the ideal setting for this eternal conflict of depravity and innocence! As with many operas, the themes of revenge, mistaken identities and divine intervention feature heavily, something that was quite hidden in Victor Hugo's original novel until Verdi put it to music.
