RETURNS WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2 AT 8PM
Aleksandra Kurzak makes her role debut as Puccini’s desperate diva, opposite Roberto Alagna as the painter-revolutionary Cavaradossi. Željko Lučič reprises his acclaimed portrayal of the nefarious Baron Scarpia, and Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts.
Liberty or Death
In Don Carlos, his grand drama of Inquisition-era Spain, Verdi wages a war of ideas, pitting his own humanist ideals against an unholy union of church and state. This season, the Met rallies its troops for a new production by David McVicar, which taps into the darkness and despair of a people suffocated by tyranny, as well as the poignancy of their hopeless yet heroic struggle for freedom.
