Overview

James Robinson’s vibrant production of America’s favorite opera was a smash hit of the Met’s 2019–20 season. Bass-baritone Eric Owens and soprano Angel Blue star in the title roles, headlining a phenomenal ensemble cast. David Robertson conducts this beloved score, which includes a number of melodies that have become classic American standards.

Run Time: 3 hours and 6 minutes including one 10 minute intermission

BUT FIRST… Get “Behind the Screen” with Bel Canto Boot Camp on April 29! Join Chanae Curtis, soprano, who made her debut as Annie in the MET’s production of Porgy and Bess to get an inside perspective on being part of this monumental, timely Opening Night production. Click HERE for more info.
