Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Michael Mayer’s richly textured new production of one of the best-loved operas in the repertoire, which features a dazzling 18th-century setting that changes with the seasons. The title role of the “fallen woman” has captured the imaginations of audiences and performers alike with its inexhaustible vocal and dramatic possibilities – and challenges.
Soprano Diana Damrau plays the tragic heroine, Violetta, and tenor Juan Diego Flórez returns to the Met for the first time in five seasons to sing the role of Alfredo, Violetta’s hapless lover. Baritone Quinn Kelesy is Alfredo’s father, Germont, who destroys their love.
The opera begins at 11:55 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, with a light meal provided one hour beforehand. Tickets are available in-person at the Box Office only and may not be purchased in advance.
Prices are as follows:
General Public - $20
Goddard Members - $15
Senior Citizens - $15
Students - $10
Children - $5
