MET: Live In HD 2020-21 Season Preview


The Met: Live in HD, the Metropolitan Opera’s award-winning series of live high-definition cinema simulcasts, will begin its 15th consecutive season on 10th October, with a new production of Verdi’s Aida starring Anna Netrebko in the title role, led by the Met’s Jeanette Lerman-Neubauer Music Director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, in his first of six productions in the new season.

The 2020–21 Live in HD season features ten live transmissions, including four new productions: the first new staging of Aida in more than 30 years, directed by Michael Mayer; Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte conducted by celebrated maestro Gustavo Dudamel; and two new productions by Ivo van Hove in his Met debut season: a cinematic staging of Mozart’s Don Giovanni and the highly anticipated Met premiere of Jake Heggie’s 21st-century masterpiece Dead Man Walking, starring Joyce DiDonato.

In addition to the four new productions, Live in HD audiences will have the chance to see Sir David McVicar’s production of Verdi’s Il Trovatore; Beethoven’s sole opera, Fidelio; Bartlett Sher’s staging of Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette; a visually striking take on Strauss’s Die Frau ohne Schatten, conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin; Anna Netrebko’s highly anticipated role debut as Abigaille in Verdi’s Nabucco; and Diana Damrau and Javier Camarena in a rare revival of Bellini’s Il Pirata.
