“Les Pecheurs de Perles”
Bizet — From the 2015/2016 Season
Saturday, June 24 at 1 p.m.

Soprano Diana Damrau stars as Leïla, the beautiful priestess pursued by rival pearl divers competing for her affection. Tenor Matthew Polenzani and baritone Mariusz Kwiecien are her suitors, who sing the rapturous duet “Au fond du temple saint,” adored by opera fans worldwide. Director Penny Woolcock explores enduring themes of love, betrayal, and vengeance in a production that vividly depicts the mystical wonder of Southeast Asia, and conductor Gianandrea Noseda breathes new life into Bizet’s lush score.

Star soprano Anna Netrebko delivers a searing portrayal as Lady Macbeth, the murderously cunning consort of Željko Lučić’s doomed Macbeth.

Met Music Director Emeritus James Levine conducts Verdi’s early drama of ancient Babylon, with Plácido Domingo adding a new role to his Met repertoire as the title character.

Bizet — from the 2009/2010 Season
Saturday, July 22 at 12 p.m.

Sir Richard Eyre’s gritty production of Bizet’s steamy melodrama returns with mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča as the ill-fated gypsy temptress. Tenor Roberto Alagna plays her desperate lover, the soldier Don José, and Teddy Tahu Rhodes is the swaggering bullfighter, Escamillo, who comes between them. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts the timeless score, which features one beloved melody after another.
