Saturday April 28th - The Metropolitan Opera New York presents Massenet's Cendrillon

'Glorious', raved the New York Times when Joyce DiDonato sang the title role of Cendrillon at the Royal Opera in 2011. 'Her performance was thoroughly enchanting.' Now, for the first time ever, Massenet's sumptuous take on the Cinderella story comes to the Met, with DiDonato starring in the title role. She is paired with mezzo-soprano Alice Coote in the trouser role of Prince Charming, Kathleen Kim as the Fairy Godmother, and Stephanie Blythe as the imperious Madame de la Haltière. Bertrand de Billy conducts Laurent Pelly's imaginative storybook production. (Joyce DiDonato as Massenet's Cendrillon - Photo by Bill Cooper)


Saturday 5th May - The Metropolitan Opera New York presents Gounod's Romeo et Juliette

Bartlett Sher’s production of Gounod’s sumptuous Shakespeare adaptation was a hit of the 2016–17 Met season ("a revelation" declared the Huffington Post). Now the sweeping tragedy returns with Ailyn Pérez and Bryan Hymel, both celebrated in French repertoire, as the star crossed young lovers. Plácido Domingo conducts.
