Saturday February 23rd - The Metropolitan Opera Presents Verdi's Rigoletto

Verdi's tragic jester returns in Michael Mayer's neon-bedecked, Las Vegas-themed production. Baritone Roberto Frontali sings the title role, and soprano Nadine Sierra reprises her portrayal of Gilda, the role that helped launch her now-blossoming Met career. Tenor Vittorio Grigolo sings the role of the lascivious Duke, and Nicola Luisotti conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus. (Vittorio Grigolo in Verdi's Rigoletto.

Saturday March 2nd - The Metropolitan Opera New York presents Donizetti's La Fille du Regiment

Tenor Javier Camarena and soprano Pretty Yende team up for a feast of bel canto vocal fireworks including the show-stopping tenor aria 'Ah! Mes amis,' with its nine high Cs. Maurizio Muraro is the comic Sergeant Sulpice, with mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe as the outlandish Marquise of Berkenfield. Enrique Mazzola conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus.
