Saturday December 16th - The Metropolitan Opera presents Bellini's Norma

The 2017-18 season opens with a new production of Bellini's masterpiece, Angela Meade starring as the Druid priestess and Jamie Barton as her archrival, Adalgisa, a casting coup for bel canto fans. Tenor Joseph Calleja is Pollione, Norma's unfaithful lover, and Carlo Rizzi conducts. David McVicar's evocative production sets the action deep in a Druid forest where nature and ancient ritual rule.

Saturday December 23rd - The Metropolitan Opera presents Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro

An exceptional ensemble of performers - including Ailyn Pérez, Nadine Sierra, Isabel Leonard, Luca Pisaroni, Mariusz Kwiecien, and Ildar Abdrazakov - share the stage in Mozart’s comic yet profound look at human nature and one crazy day in a wealthy Spanish household. Acclaimed Mozartean maestro Harry Bicket conducts Richard Eyre’s high-spirited production. (A scene from Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro. Photo by Ken Howard, Metropolitan Opera)
