FALSTAFF (Verdi)

An undisputed master of Falstaff, Music Director James Levine conducts Verdi’s opera for the first time at the Met since 2005. Robert Carsen’s production—the first new Met Falstaff since 1964—is set in the English countryside in the mid-20th century. Ambrogio Maestri (last season’s Dulcamara in the Opening Night production of L’Elisir d’Amore) sings the title role of the brilliant and blustery Sir John Falstaff, opposite a marvelous ensemble that includes Angela Meade, Stephanie Blythe, Lisette Oropesa, and Franco Vassallo.

Falstaff is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera; Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; Teatro alla Scala, Milan; the Canadian Opera Company, Toronto; and De Nederlandse Opera, Amsterdam.

LA BOHÈME (Puccini)

Puccini’s moving story of young love is the most performed opera in Met history—and with good reason. Kristine Opolais stars as the frail Mimì in Franco Zeffirelli’s classic production, with Vittorio Grigolo as her passionate lover, Rodolfo.

Soprano Kristine Opolais stepped in at the last minute in the leading role of Mimì after singing the title role of Madama Butterfly the night before. It was the first time in Met history that an artist made back-to-back role debuts in less than 24 hours.
