Met Stars Live in Concert - Renee Fleming / Jonas Kaufmann
The best two for one musical deal!

Two of operas greatest artists star in back-to-back recitals from the Metropolitan Opera’s Met Stars Live in Concert series. Beloved American diva Renée Fleming performs an intimate concert from the historic Dumbarton Oaks estate in Washington, D.C., recorded live in August 2020 and superstar tenor Jonas Kaufmann gives a thrilling recital of popular arias from the Polling Abbey in Bavaria, recorded live in July 2020.

The programme will be two hours without intermission.


Lucia di Lammermoor
“Natalie Dessay was the production’s first Lucia when the production was new in 2007 and she returns to reclaim it.” – Classical Review. If you want to see superb acting and superb singing this is the definitive Lucia. Sadly now retired from the operatic stage,  Natalie Dessay reminds us here of why she was a true star.


The Merry Widow
In an art nouveau setting, Lehar’s enchanting operetta brings colour, zest and the cancan to our screens. Renee Fleming stars as the beguiling femme fatale with a fortune. Broadway favourite Kelly O’Hara sparkles as Valencienne (remember her in Cosi?). The sets are a joy to behold, especially the amazing transition to the legendary Maxim’s where everything is on offer and nothing seems forbidden.


Roberto Devereux
This is a triumph for Sondra Radvanosky, the last of the three Tudor Queens she played in one season. Queen Elizabeth is forced to sign the death warrant of the man she loves, Roberto Devereux, sung by Matthew Polenzani.The production is by the brilliant Sir David McVicar. “Searing, a triumph,” cry the critics. And so it is. “The applause and bravos for the soprano Sondra Radvanovsky were so frenzied at the end of Donizetti’s “Roberto Devereux” at the Metropolitan Opera on Thursday night that she looked overwhelmed, almost a little frightened. The audience members knew, it seemed, that they had just witnessed an emotionally vulnerable and vocally daring performance, a milestone in the career of an essential artist.” - NYTimes


La Cenerentola
The darling Joyce DiDonato and rock star handsome Juan Diego Florez are alone the reason to watch this fairytale but Rossini’s beautiful music will enchant you. The production is whimsical, the action physically comic and the performances truly stellar. No fairy Godmother but a philosophic godfather instead reminds us that this is not a traditional Cinderella.


Werther
Here’s the story of a poet whose death launched clusters of copycats in the 18th Century. Unrequited love and a longing for what can never be leads Jonas Kaufmann as Werther to his poignant end. Richard Eyre’s sets are wonderful and the final hovering claustrophobic study becomes the place for Werther’s surprisingly graphic suicide. Sophie Koch is a matchless Charlotte, the object of Werther’s obsession. One reviewer pointed out that in a more modern era this would be termed a stalker’s opera.


Faust
Would you sell your soul to the devil for an extra 24 years of life?Perhaps if the extra years could be spent listening to Jonas Kaufmann! Des McAnuff’s thrilling 2011 production places the mythical and timeless story in an early 20th-century setting. René Pape as Méphistophélès is menacing and elegant in equal measure, and Marina Poplavskaya delivers a searingly intense portrayal of the innocent Marguerite. Russell Braun as her brother, Valentin, shines in his Act II aria. On the podium, Yannick Nézet-Séguin brings out all the lyricism and drama of Gounod’s score.


Der Rosenkavalier
A production of gilt and red damask, hauntingly beautiful music and a fitting farewell to Renee Fleming’s portrayal of this role. Renee Fleming is the Marschallin and Elina Garanca the young Octavian with whom she is having an affair. “Wearing a fur coat, her hair all golden locks, Ms. Fleming’s Marschallin looks glamorous, yet clearly wounded. She sings the arching melodic line that begins Strauss’s transcendent trio with seamless phrasing and ethereal sound, her more mature voice blending poignantly with the youthful colorings of Ms. Morley and Ms. Garanca.” - NYTimes


Manon
Here’s the story of a woman who simply wants everything, love and money - the original Material Girl, Manon has been sent away to join a convent, her family having seen the beginnings of her wayward nature. She escapes this fate and allows her sensual nature full rein, only to die impoverished and disgraced.


Akhnaten
Here’s a masterpiece, hypnotic and ritualistic. It will be like nothing you have ever seen before. The star counter-tenor Anthony Roth Costanzo is the legendary Pharaoh who transformed Ancient Egypt. Phelim McDermott’s goal is to create a theatrical experience that is beyond words, plot and conventional storytelling. Operawire calls it: “The Best Met Production of the Year.


The Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess
Director James Robinson’s stylish production transports audiences to Catfish Row, a setting vibrant with the music, dancing, emotion, and heartbreak of its inhabitants. It’s a tapestry of sound and movement with George Gershwin’s lush score underpinning the lyrics of his brother, Ira Gershwin and the libretto of DuBose Heyward. The ensemble work has an energy rarely seen in the musical theatre. Quite amazing!


Agrippina
Handel’s tale of intrigue and impropriety in ancient Rome receives its first Met performances, with star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina and Harry Bicket conducting. Sir David McVicar’s production ingeniously reframes the action of this black comedy about the abuse of power to “the present,” where it should loudly resonate. Prepared to be shocked! What a great family this is! Mum, married to her uncle (yes) whom she will eventually poison with mushrooms, working hard to promote her own crazy son to the throne after which he will have her clubbed to death. Fortunately Handel ends his opera at a point where the ascension is guaranteed.

Our wonderful Met in New York is still in limbo but here at FAMA we can definitely tell you that our encores for 2021 will have been chosen partly by you through your comments on the great streaming productions  from the Met.

We’ll be adding the MET Stars Live in Concert: Renee Fleming and Jonas Kaufmann as a special feature.

Our beloved Bethanie Cowsheds are still closed until further notice but we at FAMA are planning celebrations when we are eventually allowed to gather again for our picnics and camaraderie! It will happen and we’ll meet again there. We have to thank everyone for their loyalty to FAMA and the Met. Music really is a magic bond between people through difficult times.

A youthful cast brings Rossini’s immortal comedy to sparkling life, led by Christopher Maltman as Figaro, the resourceful barber and man-about-town of the title. The lovely Isabel Leonard is Rosina, the clever young woman at the center of the story, and Lawrence Brownlee sings Count Almaviva, the man who loves her and—with Figaro’s help—rescues her from the house of her elderly and smitten guardian, Bartolo, played by Maurizio Muraro. Bel canto specialist Michele Mariotti leads the Met’s musical forces in Bartlett Sher’s lively production.

一群年輕歌唱家為羅西尼的經典喜劇注入生命──克里斯多福‧莫爾特曼(Christopher Maltman)飾演百事通理髮師費加羅;動人的伊莎貝爾.萊納德(Isabel Leonard)飾演聰明美麗的羅西亞;而勞倫斯.布朗利(Lawrence Brownlee)飾演羅西亞的戀人阿瑪維瓦伯爵。羅西亞的監護人巴托羅由毛里齊奧.穆拉羅(Maurizio Muraro)演出,米歇爾‧馬里奧蒂(Michele Mariotti)指揮音樂,巴特萊.謝爾(Bartlett Sher)負責此活潑生動的製作。

One of the biggest hits of the 2019–20 season, Philip Glass's Akhnaten is the third installment in the composer's Portrait Trilogy focused on revolutionary figures from world history. Starring as the ancient Egyptian pharaoh who attempted to radically alter his society, countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo headlines this performance from the Live in HD series. In her Met-debut season, Karen Kamensek conducts the hypnotic score, leading a cast that also features soprano Disella Larusdottir as Queen Tye, mezzo-soprano J'Nai Bridges as Nefertiti, and bass Zachary James as Amenhotep I. Phelim McDermott's endlessly inventive production fills the Met stage with breathtaking visuals, including virtuosic pattern-juggling routines by Gandini Juggling.

Please note that Akhnaten will be performed without subtitles, except for scene titles and select texts. Director Phelim McDermott’s goal is to create a theatrical experience that is beyond words, plot information and conventional storytelling. He wants the audience for Akhnaten to be overtaken by the hypnotic nature of the music, the visual imagery and the pageant-like nature of the piece. The scribe sets the scene in English, and the rest of the text (including ancient Egyptian and Hebrew) which does not have subtitles is highly repetitive, often fragmented and ritualistic rather than descriptive.

2019-2020年季度最受歡迎劇目之一,《阿肯那頓》是作曲家菲利普‧葛拉斯以真實歷史傳奇人物為材的人物傳記三部曲其中一章,講述這位古埃及法老王企圖徹底改革社會的一生。由假聲男高音巨星安東尼·羅斯·科斯坦佐 (Anthony Roth Costanzo) 領銜主演,同場有迪素拉.拉雷斯達提雅 (Disella Larusdottir) 飾演泰伊太后、喬奈·布里奇斯 (J’Nai Bridges) 飾演娜芙蒂蒂皇后、扎卡里·詹姆 (Zachary James) 飾演阿蒙霍特普三世。凱倫·凱文賽克 (Karen Kamensek) 首度在大都會歌劇院登台指揮。菲利·麥達莫 (Phelim McDermott) 大顯藝術異采,運用特技演員創造令人目不轉睛的畫面,與本劇心馳神遊的儀式音樂相得益彰。

《阿肯那頓》將提供有限英文字幕。製作團隊希望以靈幻的音樂及舞台,帶給觀眾擬幻似真,越過文字界限的演出。

There is juggling, and more juggling...

Handel’s breakout opera masterpiece, Agrippina offers a wryly satirical look at the political maneuverings and personal entanglements of the Roman emperor Claudius, his cadre of advisers and hangers-on, and his cunning wife, Agrippina. During the 2019–20 season, the Baroque black comedy had its long-awaited Met premiere in new production by Sir David McVicar that updated the action to the present age. In this Live in HD transmission, mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato delivers a knockout performance of the title role, a woman who will stop at nothing to get her depraved son, Nero (sung by mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey), on the throne. Harry Bicket conducts an exquisite ensemble cast, which also features soprano Brenda Rae in her debut season as Poppea, countertenor Iestyn Davies as Ottone, countertenor Nicholas Tamagna as Narciso, baritone Duncan Rock as Pallante, and bass Matthew Rose as Claudio.

韓德爾的成名作《阿格里皮娜》充滿黑色幽默,挪揄諷刺古羅馬克勞狄烏斯皇帝與其奸狡貪權的妻子阿格里皮娜的種種濫權惡行。於2019-2020年季度,這套巴洛克黑色喜劇首度登上大都會歌劇院,大衛·麥克維卡 (Sir David McVicar) 的製作巧思讓這部歌劇脫胎換骨,呼應「現今社會」的濫權亂象。著名女中音喬伊斯·迪多納托 (Joyce DiDonato) 飾演控制慾強烈、貪慕權位的阿格里皮娜,為了讓其子儲君尼祿 (由女中音凱特·林齊 (Kate Lindsey) 飾演) 登上皇位無所不用其極。由哈里·比凱 (Harry Bicket) 擔任指揮。演員陣容星光熠熠, 包括女高音布蘭達·蕾 (Brenda Rae) 飾演波佩亞、假聲男高音伊絲汀·戴維斯 (Iestyn Davies) 飾演奧托內、男低音馬修·羅斯 (Matthew Rose) 飾演克勞狄烏斯皇帝。

Donizetti’s timeless comedy shines in Otto Schenk’s enchanting production, conducted by James Levine and featuring a remarkable cast. The incomparable Anna Netrebko is Norina, the young widow beloved by Ernesto (a suave Matthew Polenzani), who is about to be disinherited by his miserly uncle, Don Pasquale (John Del Carlo). It takes the clever scheming of Dr. Malatesta (Mariusz Kwiecien) to set things right and to teach the old curmudgeon a lesson—fits of temper, mistaken identities, and all kinds of comic confusion included.

由奧圖‧申克(Otto Schenk)執導這套迷人製作,詹士.萊文(James Levine)指揮,加上一眾出色歌唱家,這套董尼采第的永恆喜劇在舞台上熠熠生輝。安娜‧尼特立哥(Anna Netrebko)飾演年輕寡婦諾麗娜,馬修.布蘭札尼(Matthew Polenzani)飾演愛上她的埃內斯托,但因此快要被叔叔唐‧帕斯誇萊(約翰‧德卡洛(John Del Carlo)主演)剝奪其財產繼承權。最後要由馬拉泰斯塔醫生(馬里奧斯‧桂斯安(Mariusz Kwiecien)飾演)救場,教了老頭子寶貴的一課。

During the 2019–20 season, one of America’s greatest operas returned to the Met stage for the first time in 30 years, with the premiere of James Robinson’s vibrant new production of Porgy and Bess. In this Live in HD transmission, bass-baritone Eric Owens and soprano Angel Blue star in the title roles, headlining a phenomenal ensemble cast. The performance also features soprano Golda Schultz and bass-baritone Donovan Singletary as Clara and Jake, soprano Latonia Moore as Serena, and tenor Frederick Ballentine and bass-baritone Alfred Walker as Sportin’ Life and Crown. And as the community matriarch Maria, veteran mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves delivers a scene-stealing performance. David Robertson conducts this beloved score, which includes a number of melodies that have become classic American standards.

於2019-2020年季度,美國超級熱門歌劇暌違將近30年後再次重返大都會歌劇院。詹姆斯·羅賓森 (James Robinson) 發揮獨特製作風格,帶領觀眾前往查爾斯頓濱水的鯰魚街。由大衛·羅伯森 (David Robertson) 負責統理指揮精采的演員陣容,埃里克·歐文斯 (Eric Owens) 與安潔兒·布魯 (Angel Blue) 同台飆戲,帶來扣人心弦的演出。本次豪華陣容還包括戈爾達·舒爾茲 (Golda Schultz) 、拉東婭·摩爾 (Latonia Moore) 、丹妮絲·葛瑞芙絲(Denyce Graves)、費德里克·巴倫提尼 (Frederick Ballentine) 、阿爾弗雷·沃克 (Alfred Walker) 以及萊恩.斯畢多.葛林 (Ryan Speedo Green) 。

When this sumptuous production by Giancarlo del Monaco opened in 1995, legendary tenor Plácido Domingo gave a riveting performance as the fiery revolutionary Gabriele Adorno, a tenor part. In the 2010 revival, he made history by taking on the baritone title role, one of Verdi’s most fascinating characters, and thrilling audiences with his multifaceted and gripping portrayal. Boccanegra is beset on all sides, juggling political adversaries bent on murder with his love for his long-lost daughter Amelia (Adrianne Pieczonka). James Levine’s conducting brings out all the color and surging emotion of Verdi’s magnificent score.

由詹卡洛‧德爾‧莫納科(Giancarlo del Monaco)負責的華麗製作的《西蒙‧波卡涅拉》於1995年首演時,傳奇男高音普拉斯度・杜明高(Plácido Domingo)曾擔任加布里埃萊‧阿多爾諾一角。於2010年的重演,杜明高創下歷史,挑戰由男中音演唱的主角西蒙‧波卡涅拉,並以扣人心弦的演技震撼觀眾。波卡涅拉一角非常耐人尋味,其失散多年的女兒(由雅芝‧琵薔卡(Adrianne Pieczonka)飾演)愛上想見他人頭落地的政敵,讓波卡涅拉陷入兩難局面。詹士.萊文(James Levine)負責指揮威爾第充滿豐富色彩的音樂。

Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher’s bold new production probes the psychological underpinnings of Verdi’s dynamic setting of Shakespeare’s great tragedy. At the helm of this performance is riveting conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who brings out all the cascading emotions in Verdi’s turbulent score. Aleksandrs Antonenko is the Moor Otello, the triumphant general of the Venetian army who is ultimately brought down by the sly insinuations of his friend Iago (Željko Lučić). Sonya Yoncheva continues to win fans as Desdemona, Otello’s faithful and long-suffering wife. With Günther Groissböck as Lodovico and Dimitri Pittas as Cassio.

Tony Award–winning director Bartlett Sher’s new staging of Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette updates the action to 18th-century Verona and conjures both the magic and heartbreak of this timeless love story.

Soprano Sondra Radvanovsky completes her season-long exploration of Donizetti’s three Tudor queen operas, starring as Elizabeth I in this final installment. David McVicar’s atmospheric Met premiere production frames the dramatic and heart-rending love story of the queen and the Earl of Essex as a play within a play unfolding before the members of the royal court. Radvanovsky’s portrayal of the aging monarch is a tour de force, laying bare the conflict between her public duties as ruler of England and her private feelings as a woman. Matthew Polenzani is the Earl of Essex, Roberto Devereux, the object of her affections who is torn between two women. Elina Garanca as Sarah and Mariusz Kwiecien as her husband, the Duke of Nottingham, complete the quartet of principals. Maurizio Benini conducts.

The tragic tale of "the bride of Lammermoor" has always been a favorite of opera-goers and sopranos alike. Yet with the riveting singing actress Natalie Dessay in the title role, Lucia's plight and descent into madness take on another dimension. Joseph Calleja is an ardent Edgardo, the man she loves but is not allowed to marry. Instead, her brother Enrico (Ludovic Tézier) forces her into a union with the rich Arturo (Matthew Plenk) to save the family fortunes. It proves too much to bear for Lucia—but certainly not for Met audiences, who hailed Dessay's stunning performance of this iconic bel canto role.

《拉美莫爾的露琪亞》的悲劇一向深受歌劇愛好者青睞。女高音娜塔莉.德賽 (Natalie Dessay) 飾演美聲歌劇的代表角露琪亞,其技驚四座的演出將露琪亞遭受打擊而崩潰發狂的一幕發揮得淋漓盡致,動人心弦。約瑟夫.卡列雅 (Joseph Calleja) 飾演埃德加,注定不得與露琪亞一起的情人。路德維克.泰兹 (Ludovic Tézier) 演唱露琪亞的兄長恩里科,迫使她與由馬修.普倫克 (Matthew Plenk) 演出的阿圖羅政治聯婚以挽救家族。

Bartlett Sher’s imaginative production explores all the riches of Offenbach’s fantastical tale. Joseph Calleja is the poet Hoffmann who is enthralled by a variety of women—neither of which turns out to be the perfect creature he envisions. Kathleen Kim scales the vocal heights of the mechanical doll Olympia. Anna Netrebko literally sings herself to death as Antonia and also plays the diva Stella. Ekaterina Gubanova is the sultry courtesan Giulietta. Alan Held’s Four Villains foil all of Hoffmann’s plans. James Levine conducts with ardor and dramatic energy, bringing out every colorful detail of this rich score.

Ever since her first Met performances as the Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier in 2000, Renee Fleming has been celebrated as one of the most compelling interpreters of the role. In this Live in HD transmission, broadcast nearly two decades later, the silver-voiced American soprano sings her final performance as the elegant princess coming to grips with the persistent passage of time. Mezzo-soprano Elina Garanca delivers a commanding portrayal as Octavian, the title “Knight of the Rose” and the Marschallin’s impetuous young lover, in Robert Carsen’s madcap new production—which sets the action in 1911, the year of the work’s premiere. As the plucky young heiress Sophie, Erin Morley sings with a radiantly beautiful soprano, while bass Gunther Groissbock offers a larger-than-life portrayal of Baron Ochs auf Lerchenau, the outlandish nobleman lusting after every woman in sight. And tenor Matthew Polenzani excites with his cameo appearance as the Italian Singer in Act I. Maestro Sebastian Weigle leads a buoyant account of Strauss’s beloved score, which incorporates Viennese waltzes, raucous comedy, and the composer’s characteristically vivid palette of orchestral color.

自2000年於大都會歌劇院演出玫瑰騎士大獲好評,芮妮.弗萊明 (Renee Fleming) 被譽為元帥夫人一角最佳演繹者。在這場演出中,弗萊明將最後一次演唱元帥夫人一角。女中音艾麗娜.嘉蘭莎 (Elina Garanca) 飾演奧克塔文,元帥夫人的年輕情人,亦是劇中的玫瑰騎士。導演羅伯.卡森製作,將故事背景轉移到歌劇上演的1911年。艾琳.莫爾利 (Erin Morley) 演唱富商年輕女兒蘇菲,居恩特.格萊斯博克 (Gunther Groissbock) 飾演無禮好色的歐克斯男爵。馬修.布蘭札尼 (Matthew Polenzani) 客串意大利歌手一角。巴斯蒂安.魏格利 (Sebastian Weigle) 指揮精采完美,充滿維也納華爾茲色彩的樂曲。

Sir David McVicar’s bold new staging of Tosca, Puccini’s operatic thriller of Napoleonic Rome, thrilled Met audiences when it rang in the New Year in 2018. In this performance, soprano Sonya Yoncheva is the passionate title diva, opposite charismatic tenor Vittorio Grigolo as her lover, the idealistic painter Mario Cavaradossi. Baritone Željko Lučić is the menacing Baron Scarpia, the evil chief of police who employs brutal tactics to ensnare both criminals and sexual conquests.

Simon Keenlyside smolders dangerously in the title role of Mozart’s version of the legend of Don Juan, creating a vivid portrait of a man who is a law unto himself, and all the more dangerous for his eternally seductive allure. Adam Plachetka is his occasionally unruly servant Leporello. It’s when Giovanni tangles with Donna Anna (Hibla Gerzmava) that things start to unravel, aided by the reappearance of Donna Elvira (Malin Byström), who is determined not to let her seducer go. Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus.

西蒙‧金利賽德(Simon Keenlyside)擔綱演出莫札特版本的無法無天又玩弄無數女人的情聖唐璜。亞當‧普萊西塔(Adam Plachetka)飾演他的僕人列波萊羅;唐娜‧安娜由黑博拉.格茲瑪娃(Hibla Gerzmava)飾演;而唐娜‧埃爾薇拉則瑪琳‧畢斯壯(Malin Byström)演出。首席指揮法比奧‧路易斯(Fabio Luisi)擔當指揮。

Ever since graduating from the Met’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, Lisette Oropesa has had a meteoric career around the world, excelling in some of the pinnacles of the soprano repertoire. During the 2019–20 season, she returned to the Met stage to star in her largest role with the company to date, the irresistible heroine of Massenet’s Manon. As the young ingenue, Oropesa delivers a stunning performance, marked by brilliant coloratura, melting lyricism, and enchanting stage presence. Recorded as part of the Met’s Live in HD series of cinema transmissions, this performance also features tenor Michael Fabiano as the impetuous Chevalier des Grieux and baritone Artur Rucinski as Lescaut. Maurizio Benini is on the podium to lead one of the most passionate scores in the French operatic repertoire.

自畢業於美國大都會歌劇院林德曼新秀培養計劃,女高音利森特·奧羅佩莎 (Lisette Oropesa) 於一躍成為歌劇界新星。於2019-2020年季度,她回歸大都會歌劇院舞台,唱演馬斯奈《瑪儂》中風靡眾人的女主角。其甜美唱功與迷人演技獲得極高評價。男高音邁克爾.法比亞諾 (Michael Fabiano) 飾演癡情的德格魯騎士,阿圖爾‧魯欽斯基(Artur Rucinski)飾演拉斯考特。本劇由毛里齊奧·貝尼尼(Maurizio Benini) 登台指揮,演奏馬斯奈醉人動聽的樂曲。

Richard Eyre’s stunning new production of Bizet’s opera was the talk of the town when it was unveiled on New Year’s Eve 2009. Elīna Garanča leads the cast as the iconic gypsy of the title—a woman desired by every man but determined to remain true to herself. Roberto Alagna is Don José, the soldier who falls under her spell and sacrifices everything for her love, only to be cast aside when the toreador Escamillo (Teddy Tahu Rhodes) piques Carmen’s interest. With dances created by star choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, this Carmen brings every aspect of Bizet’s tale to thrilling life, from its lighthearted beginning to its inevitably tragic climax.

這套驚艷的《卡門》由理查.埃爾 (Richard Eyre)執導,於2009首演馬上成為城中熱話。艾麗娜.嘉蘭莎 (Elīna Garanča)領銜主演,演活風情萬種但忠於自己的吉卜賽女郎;羅伯托阿藍尼亞 (Roberto Alagna)飾演墮入情網的軍人唐荷西;泰迪‧塔胡‧羅得斯(Teddy Tahu Rhodes)擔當鬥牛士埃斯卡米諾,卡門的新情人。由著名編舞家克里斯托弗.惠爾頓及指揮家雅尼克‧涅採西格英 (Yannick Nézet-Séguin)攜手合作,這套《卡門》製作將比才震撼人心的故事完美地呈現觀眾眼前。

Michael Mayer’s dazzling staging which premiered during the 2018–19 season was a significant event, as it marked Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s first performances as the Met’s Jeanette Lerman-Neubauer Music Director. On the podium, Nézet-Séguin leads a starry ensemble. As Violetta, the consumptive heroine fighting to find true happiness, soprano Diana Damrau delivers yet another compelling portrayal on the Met stage. Tenor Juan Diego Flórez sings his first Verdi role with the company, as Violetta’s ardent yet impetuous lover, Alfredo, and baritone Quinn Kelsey rounds out the principal cast as Giorgio Germont, Alfredo’s implacable father.

於2018 - 2019季度首度登場,由麥爾克‧麥爾 (Michael Mayer) 負責《茶花女》全新的繁華製作,是雅尼克‧涅採西格英 (Yannick Nézet-Séguin)新上任大都會歌劇院音樂總監後的第一場演出,意義重大。台上星光熠熠,女高音戴安娜‧丹姆勞 (Diana Damrau)傾情演出掙扎尋找真正快樂的女主角薇奧莉;男高音胡安‧迪亞戈‧佛瑞茲 (Juan Diego Flórez)首次在大都會歌劇院舞台上演繹威爾第作品,飾演薇奧莉的情人阿弗雷多;男中音昆恩‧契爾斯 (Quinn Kelsey) 演出從中破壞的父親傑爾蒙一角。
