The Met: Live in HD 2016-2017

Presented in collaboration with Opera Omaha.

All live Saturday broadcasts will feature a Prelude Talk by Opera Omaha, beginning prior to the performance start time. Encore presentations will be offered for all ten of this season’s productions, with encores taking place the Wednesday (6pm) following the live Saturday event.

The 2016-17 Season of The Met: Live in HD will begin on October 8, 2016 with the 100th transmission in series history, of a new production of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, directed by Mariusz Treliński, and starring Nina Stemme—the world’s preeminent Isolde. Opera lovers can look forward to five new productions, including Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, starring Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo; Dvořák’s Rusalka in a new staging by Nebraska native, Mary Zimmerman, and Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, with Renée Fleming as the Marschallin in her farewell performances to the operatic stage. The season will also feature such beloved works as Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Idomeneo, Verdi’s La Traviata and Nabucco (both featuring Plácido Domingo), and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, starring Anna Netrebko as Tatiana opposite the Onegin of Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Also not to be missed is the Met’s premiere of Kaija Saariaho’s L’Amour de Loin (“Love from Afar”) in a new production directed by Robert Lepage and paced by Finnish conductor Susanna Mälkki. This historic performance will mark the first time that the Met has staged an opera by a woman composer since 1903.
