The ten performances from the “Met live in HD” season 2016-17 show the entire range of opera from all-time favorites like Verdi’s early Biblical epic Nabucco starring Plácido Domingo in the title role to rare gems like Saariaho’s breakthrough opera L’Amour de Loin in a dazzling new production by Robert Lepage.
In addition to Mariusz Treliński’s new production of Tristan und Isolde, the season features new stagings of Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, starring Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo; Dvořák’s Rusalka, with Kristine Opolais in her international breakthrough role; and Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, with the farewell performances of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian. The season also includes repertory favorites like Mozart’s Don Giovanni, with Simon Keenlyside in his first Met performances of the rakish title character; Verdi’s La Traviata, with Sonya Yoncheva as the doomed Violetta; Mozart’s Idomeneo, conducted by Met Music Director James Levine; and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, with Anna Netrebko repeating one of her great triumphs of recent seasons opposite the Onegin of Peter Mattei.
All titles from the “Met live in HD” series are available for TV, distributed by Clasart Classic.
