    Opera Night

    The Metropolitan Opera New York presents Alban Berg's Wozzeck

    Saturday May 7th - Mozart’s Die Entführung aus dem Serail

    Met Music Director James Levine returns to a work he has long cherished, Mozart’s delightful comic gem of wily captives in a harem. Coloratura soprano sensation Albina Shagimuratova stars in the bravura role of Konstanze. Rising tenor Paul Appleby is her lover, Belmonte, soprano Kathleen Kim is her shrewd maid, Blondchen, and bass Hans-Peter König delivers comic gravitas as the overseer of the harem.
