The last opera by one of the longest-lived composers in history, Capriccio turns the tables on audience members, giving them a glimpse of life in the theater from the other side of the curtain. Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly), what happens behind the scenes is filled with as much drama and comedy as what takes place onstage! The plot revolves around the Countess — a supporter of the arts, just like you — and her courtship by both a composer and a playwright (poet?). In choosing one over the other, she plans to answer this age-old question: Which is more important to opera, the music or the words?
This early satirical send-up helped Gilbert and Sullivan chart a new course for modern musical theater. The captain's daughter has caught the eye — and the heart — of two men at once: a lowly sailor and the pompous Sir Joseph Porter. Only a bumbling baby farmer named Little Buttercup can unravel this mess of mistaken identities and mismatched marriages. Filled with infectious tunes and featuring a rousing finale, it's no wonder this classic comedy still makes a modern-day splash!
Associated Chamber Music Players embraces a new way to bring chamber music players together across the globe as PubliQuartet conducts back-to-back masterclass sessions with two learning quartets. A multi-camera crew will deliver every detail of the workshop in a close-up, real-time stream. Chamber music players, wherever they are, can participate in groups, ensembles, or individually on their computers and devices, gaining tips and insights into playing technique and interpretation on two chamber music works. Participants also interact throughout the session via a live chat feed, connecting with the event and each other. Online participants will fully experience the session as if they were in the room.
Anthony Minghella's stunning production of Giacomo Puccini's heartbreaking opera, an instant Met classic since its 2006 premiere, returns with Hui He and Ermonela Jaho in the tragic title role of the trusting geisha. Roberto Aronica and Luis Chapa alternate as her callous American lover, Pinkerton. Jader Bignamini and Marco Armiliato conduct.

"Ponselle, Milanov, Sutherland, Callas … after last night, Radvanovsky can add her name to the list," declared the Huffington Post when Sondra Radvanovsky made her Met role debut as Norma in 2013. The 2017–18 season opens with a new production of Bellini's masterpiece, starring Radvanovsky as the Druid priestess and Joyce DiDonato as her archrival, Adalgisa—a casting coup for bel canto fans. Tenor Joseph Calleja is Pollione, Norma's unfaithful lover, and Carlo Rizzi conducts. Sir David McVicar's evocative production sets the action deep in a Druid forest where nature and ancient ritual rule.
Thanks to an ancestor who loved torturing witches, the Baronet of Ruddigore is cursed — if he doesn't commit a crime every day, his life will end in agony, and the curse will be handed down to the next in line. No wonder he doesn't stick around to follow through with his destiny, leaving the title and the curse with his younger brother. But when the ghosts of the Baronet's past reveal themselves in the Ruddigore Castle picture gallery, he's forced out of hiding and back into the role of daily criminal. But destiny and curses aren't the most flexible of things, so the clever Baronet must figure out a way to make everyone happy in the end, especially himself.
