A new season of Live from the Met has arrived

21 July 2022

We're delighted to let you know that Live from the Met is back for its 2022-23 season and tickets will go on sale soon. This season features some of the world's greatest performers in productions ranging from romantic classics to a thrilling world premiere.

"from romantic classics to a thrilling world premiere."

The season begins on Sat 22 October with a Met Premiere, Medea, starring soprano Sondra Radvanovsky as the mythic sorceress. This is followed by Michael Mayer’s vibrant production of Verdi’s beloved tragedy La Traviata, on Sat 5 November. The world premiere of Kevin Puts’s The Hours, arrives in cinemas on Sat 10 December starring soprano Renée Fleming in her highly anticipated return to the Met and also starring soprano Kelli O’Hara and mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato in this new adaption of the acclaimed novel. The new year sees Giordano’s exhilarating drama Fedora return to the Met for the first time in 25 years, screening on Sat 14 January, followed by an atmospheric new staging of Wagner’s Lohengrin by François Girard on Sat 18 March. In April, Baritone Michael Volle stars as the caddish knight Falstaff in Verdi’s glorious Shakespearean comedy on Sat 1 April, and Maestro Simone Young takes the podium to oversee Robert Carsen’s fin-de-siécle staging of Der Rosenkavalier with a stellar trio assembled to take on the lead roles in Strauss’s comedy - soprano Lisa Davidsen, mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard and soprano Erin Morley – on 15 April; on 29 April six-time Grammy Award-winning composer Terence Blanchard brings his first opera to the Met after his Fire Shut Up in My Bones made history in the 2021-22 with Champion. Then on Sat 20 May Tony Award-winning director Ivo van Hove makes his Met debut with a new staging of Mozart’s tragicomedy Don Gionvanni. Closing the season is Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, with a brilliant cast included soprano Erin Morley as Pamina, tenor Lawrence Brownlee as Tamino, Baritone Thomas Oliemans in his Met debut Papageno, soprano Kathryn Lewek as Queen of the Night, and bass Stephen Milling as Sarastro.
