    Opera Night

    Join Bernard Clarke this evening for Catalani's La Wally from the Grand Theatre in Geneva in a new co-production with Monte-Carlo Opera starring Barbara Frittoli

    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.
