GREAT PERFORMANCES AT THE MET
Carmen

 

Mezzo-soprano Clementine Margaine reprises her portrayal of opera’s ultimate seductress, a triumph in her 2017 debut performances, with impassioned tenors Yonghoon Lee and Roberto Alagna as her lover, Don Jose. Omer Meir Wellber and Louis Langree share conducting duties for Sir Richard Eyre’s production, a Met favorite since its 2009 premiere.

 

 

 

GREAT PERFORMANCES AT THE MET
Madama Butterfly

 

Kristine Opolais brings her heartbreaking interpretation of the title role of Madama Butterfly in this new staging of the late Anthony Minghella’s critically acclaimed 2006 production. Roberto Alagna sings Lieutenant Pinkerton, the callous officer who crushes Butterfly’s dreams of love. Conductor Karel Mark Chichon leads a cast that also includes Maria Zifchak as Suzuki and Dwayne Croft as Sharpless.
