Sat, Feb 25, 9:55 am / Sun, Mar 12, 2 pm

Brandon Jovanovich, Jamie Barton, Katarina Dalayman, and Eric Owens complete the all-star cast, and Mark Elder conducts.
TheNew York Times said, “the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo are on stage together.” Now they’re back as opera’s classic lovers, in Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation. The production has already won acclaim for its vivid 18th-century milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala.
Sonya Yoncheva sings the tragic courtesan Violetta, a role in which she triumphed on the Met stage in 2015, opposite Michael Fabiano as her lover, Alfredo, and Thomas Hampson as his father, Germont. Carmen Giannattasio sings later performances of the title role opposite Atalla Ayan, with the great Plácido Domingo as Germont.
Mozart’s first operatic masterpiece returns to the Met, conducted by James Levine. The cast includes Matthew Polenzani as the king torn by a rash vow; mezzo-soprano Alice Coote as his noble son Idamante; soprano Nadine Sierra as Ilia; and soprano Elza van den Heever as the volatile Elettra, who loves Idamante to the bounds of madness.
Tchaikovsky’s setting of Pushkin’s timeless verse novel is presented on the Metropolitan Opera stage in Deborah Warner’s moving production, starring Anna Netrebko and Peter Mattei as Tatiana and Onegin. Alexey Dolgov sings the role of Lenski, and Robin Ticciati conducts.

Director Robert Carsen places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs.
