We regret to announce that the remainder of the 2019–20 Live in HD season has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 2020–21 Live in HD season will commence on October 10 with a new production of Verdi’s Aida, starring Anna Netrebko.
Statement from the Met Opera:
"During this extraordinary and difficult time, the Met hopes to brighten the lives of our audience members even while our stage is dark. Each day, a different encore presentation from the company’s Live in HD series is being made available for free streaming.”
More information can be found on their website at https://www.metopera.org/ including details of the free nightly streaming service.
Superstar soprano Anna Netrebko returns in the title role as the explosive diva in Puccini’s best-loved operatic thriller. Based in Rome during the Napoleonic wars, this tragic tale of passion, murder, lust and love, set against a famously romantic score, is an enduring classic.
Bertrand de Billy conducts Sir David McVicar’s evocative production, with tenor Brian Jagde as Tosca’s impassioned lover, Cavaradossi, and baritone Michael Volle as the sinister Scarpia.
Please note: This performance is a screening recorded live from The Met Opera with a running time of 3 hours including two intervals.
