The Metropolitan Opera revealed its 2019-20 schedule for its ever-popular Live in HD series. The 14th season of the cycle will begin on October 12, 2019 with the broadcast Puccini's Turandot directed by Franco Zeffirell. The performance will be led by the new music director of the New York scene – Yannick Nézet-Séguin.
As many as five premieres will be among the ten broadcasts. As in previous years, we will have the pleasure to see and hear Polish singers taking part in the transmissions from the MET. Artur Ruciński will perform in Massenet's Manon and Andrzej Filończyk in Donizetti's Maria Stuart . Apart from Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who will also lead the premiere of Wozzeck by Alban Berg, at the conductor's desk we will also see Valery Gergiev, Maurizio Benini and Bernard De Billy.
Before Christmas, especially for children's audience, the MET will recall the first ever opera show ever screened in cinemas – sparkling with humor and full of magic, Mozart's Enchanted Flute of 2006. The summer replays of the most interesting titles are traditionally awaiting for the audiences. We'll see Aïda by Verdi, broadcasted in the 2018-19 season with the participation of Anna Netrebko and Anita Rachvelishvili, and the famous performance of La Bohème in Zeffirelli's staging, in which Kristine Opolais, now the number one star of the MET, took up the sudden replacement in the Mimì part. The New York scene will also remind Romeo and Julia by Gounod with Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo and The Barber of Seville in the star cast from 2007, not broadcasted to Poland at the time.
Live broadcasts from The Metropolitan Opera will be shown all over the world in over 70 countries. Thanks to nazywowkinach.pl, Polish viewers will watch New York shows with the participation of the biggest stars in 35 centres.
