Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Mariusz Treliński’s new staging, which sets the grand tale of ill-fated love, deadly vendettas, and family strife in a contemporary world and makes extensive use of the Met’s turntable to represent the unstoppable advance of destiny that drives the opera’s chain of calamitous events.
The staging not only marks the company’s first new production of the work in nearly 30 years but also the first time that Live in HD audiences can experience Verdi’s gripping tragedy.
Following a string of recent Met triumphs—including Der Rosenkavalier (2023) and Ariadne auf Naxos (2022)—soprano sensation Lise Davidsen headlines as the noble Leonora, who flees home after being forced to abandon the man she loves. The distinguished cast also features tenor Brian Jagde as Leonora’s forbidden beloved, Don Alvaro; baritone Igor Golovatenko as her vengeful brother, Don Carlo; mezzo-soprano Ekaterina Semenchuk as the fortune teller Preziosilla; bass-baritone Patrick Carfizzi as Fra Melitone; and bass Soloman Howard as both Leonora’s father and Padre Guardiano.
