The Metropolitan Opera, New York, presents opera’s greatest stars perform in a groundbreaking new series of recitals in striking locations around the globe, each live via satellite and shot with multiple cameras.

The cameras will be free to fully explore the interiors of the venues, capturing the artists’ performances as well as the architectural details of their unusual locations. Entrances and exits will be dispensed with, and in order to give the singers breaks from their strenuous groups of arias, the camera will cut back to New York and to the host of the programs, soprano Christine Goerke, who will introduce brief documentary segments that will fill these pauses.

• Jonas Kaufmann from the Baroque Abbey in Polling, Germany
• Renée Fleming from the Dumbarton Oaks Museum in Washington, D.C.
• Roberto Alagna and Aleksandra Kurzak outdoors from the Château de la Chèvre d’Or in Èze, France
• Lise Davidsen from the Oscarshall Palace in Oslo, Norway
