Once again the Met has produced a spectacular Live in HD  season of the world's greatest opera, coming live from the stage of the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Operas span a wide range of styles and include some great new Met productions in what promises to be an extraordinary season.



17:00, Saturday 08 October 2016 (Live)

New Production. Tristan und Isolde opens the Met’s Live in HD season in a new production by Mariusz Treliński (the director responsible for the 2014–15 double bill of Iolanta and Bluebeard’s Castle), and will be well served by a cast of outstanding Wagnerians: Nina Stemme as Isolde, Stuart Skelton as Tristan, Ekaterina Gubanova as Brangäne, and René Pape as King Marke, with Sir Simon Rattle conducting, in one of his rare appearances at the Met.



17:55, Saturday 22 October 2016 (Live)

The charismatic baritone Simon Keenlyside plays the title hero, opera’s ultimate cad, who goes to hell in a dazzling coup de théâtre. The ensemble of great Mozartean singers includes Hibla Gerzmava, Malin Byström, Rolando Villazón, and Kwangchul Youn. Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.


L'AMOUR DE LOIN (Saariaho)

17:55, Saturday 10 December 2016 (Live)

New Production. Commissioned by the Salzburg Festival, where it was first seen in 2000, Kaija Saariaho’s breakthrough opera finally has its Metropolitan Opera premiere in a dazzling new production by Robert Lepage, featuring glimmering ribbons of LED lights that extend across the length of the stage and over the orchestra pit. Eric Owens is the knight on a quest of love and Susanna Phillips is his lover on the other side of the sea. Conductor Susanna Mälkki makes her Met debut.



17:55, Saturday 07 January 2017 (Live)

The legendary Plácido Domingo brings another new baritone role to the Met under the baton of his longtime collaborator James Levine. Liudmyla Monastyrska is Abigaille, the warrior woman determined to rule empires, and Jamie Barton is the heroic Fenena. Dmitri Belosselskiy is the stentorian voice of the oppressed Hebrew people.




17:55, Saturday 21 January 2017 (Live)

New Production. When Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo starred opposite each other in Manon at the Met in 2015, the New York Times said, “the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Damrau and Grigolo are on stage together.” Now they’re back as opera’s classic lovers, in Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation. Bartlett Sher’s new production has already won acclaim for its vivid 18thcentury milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the sumptuous score.


RUSALKA (Dvořák)

17:55, Saturday 25 February 2017 (Live)

New Production. Kristine Opolais stars in the role that helped launch her international career, the mythical Rusalka, who sings the haunting “Song to the Moon.” Director Mary Zimmerman brings her wondrous theatrical imagination to Dvořák’s fairytale of love and longing, rejection and redemption. Brandon Jovanovich, Jamie Barton, Katarina Dalayman, and Eric Owens complete the all-star cast, and Mark Elder conducts.



17:55, Saturday 11 March 2017 (Live)

Sonya Yoncheva sings one of opera’s most beloved heroines, the tragic courtesan Violetta, a role in which she triumphed on the Met stage in 2015, opposite Michael Fabiano as her lover, Alfredo, and Thomas Hampson as his father, Germont. Nicola Luisotti conducts.



16:55, Saturday 25 March 2017

Mozart’s first operatic masterpiece returns to the Met in the classic Jean-Pierre Ponnelle production, conducted by James Levine. The superb ensemble includes Matthew Polenzani as the king torn by a rash vow; mezzo-soprano Alice Coote in the trouser role of his noble son Idamante; soprano Nadine Sierra as Ilia; and soprano Elza van den Heever as the volatile Elettra, who loves Idamante to the bounds of madness.


EUGENE ONEGIN (Tchaikovsky)

17:55, Saturday 22 April 2017 (Live)

Tchaikovsky’s setting of Pushkin’s timeless verse novel is presented on the Met stage in Deborah Warner’s moving production, starring Anna Netrebko and Dmitri Hvorostovsky as the lovestruck Tatiana and the aristocratic Onegin. Alexey Dolgov sings the role of Lenski, and Robin Ticciati conducts.



17:30, Saturday 13 May 2017 (Live)

New Production. The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian star in Strauss’s grandest opera. In his new production, Robert Carsen places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts the sparklingly perfect score.
