Met Live in HD 2022-23 Season Preview

MET: Live In HD 2023-23 Season Preview


The Met: Live in HD, the Metropolitan Opera’s award-winning series of live high-definition cinema simulcasts, will begin its 16th season on 22nd October, with a live transmission of Cherubini’s Medea, a Met-premiere production starring soprano Sondra Radvanovsky in the title role.

In addition to Medea, the 2022–23 Live in HD season will feature two more company premieres, both led by Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin: Kevin Puts’s The Hours, in its world-premiere production, starring the powerhouse trio of soprano Renée Fleming, mezzo- soprano Joyce DiDonato, and soprano Kelli O’Hara, and the Met premiere of Terence Blanchard’s first opera, Champion, about the life of boxer Emile Griffith. Four additional new productions will be presented throughout the season: Giordano’s Fedora with soprano Sonya Yoncheva in the title role; Wagner’s Lohengrin starring tenor Piotr Beczała; and two Mozart operas conducted by Nathalie Stutzmann, including a cinematic staging of Don Giovanni by Ivo van Hove and Simon McBurney’s production of Die Zauberflöte, which raises the orchestra pit to allow interaction with the cast. 

Irish audiences will also have the chance to see Michael Mayer’s celebrated production of Verdi’s La Traviata starring soprano Nadine Sierra as Violetta; Verdi’s Falstaff with a dynamic cast including soprano Hara Hyesang Park as Nannetta; and the return of Robert Carsen’s production of Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, with soprano Lise Davidsen and mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard as the Marschallin and Octavian.

With Classical Arts Ireland, you can enjoy all of this – at a venue near you. Stay tuned for more details.
