Until December 16, 2017

After finding herself raised up to the level of some of the genre's most celebrated singers on her 2013 debut in the role, Sondra Radvanovsky returns to the Met as Bellini's iconic high-priestess, one of the most ambitious parts in the soprano repertoire. This explosive new production by Sir David McVicar opens the Met's 2017/18 season.

Franco Zefferelli's spectacular production returns to the Met for the third time in 2017. Since its premiere in 1896, La Boheme has grown into one of the most beloved operas in the world, with only Puccini's other masterwork Madama Butterfly rivalling it for sheer popularity. This staging is split between two casts, and conducted by Alexander Soddy and Marco Armiliato.

Sworn against love by the death of her mother, proud Princess Turandot prefers watching her suitors meet a grisly end and having their heads placed on spikes at the palace gates, yet they still vie to win her hand. When Calaf takes up the challenge, the unattainable beauty may have met her match in this lavish spectacle and final masterpiece from Puccini.

Until March 16, 2018

Anthony Minghella's breathtakingly beautiful and powerfully dramatic production returns, with the lead roles of Cio-Cio San shared by Hui He and Ermonela Jaho, and the cruel Pinkerton sung by Roberto Aronica and Luis Chapa. This work is widely known as the opera that inspired the Broadway musical Miss Saigon; the tragic story sees a young Japanese bride abandoned by her American husband for a new wife back home.

Metropolitan Opera - Thais Poster

Metropolitan Opera - Thais

Until December 2, 2017

Jules Massenet's tale of sensuality and spirituality bears a remarkable resemblance to Marius Petipa's ballet La Bayadere in that it also centers around a seductive priestess and a holy man. Created in 1894 for the Paris Opera, it is one of the most seductive and introspective operas ever to grace the stage. The titular Thais will be sung by Ailyn Perez in the role of an Egyptian courtesan and priestess of Venus whom the Christian monk Athanael tries to convert to the new faith. But as she finds her salvation in Christ, he becomes obsessed with her sexually and falls to lust.
