The Met – Live in HD: Verdi’s Don Carlo ‘ New Production Saturday, December 11 ‘ 12:30pm Shalin Liu Performance Center
37 Main Street
Director Nicholas Hytner makes his Met debut with this new production of Verdi’s profound, beautiful, and most ambitious opera. Roberto Alagna leads the cast, and Ferruccio Furlanetto, Marina Poplavskaya, Anna Smirnova, and Simon Keenlyside also star. Yannick N’zet-S’guin, back after his triumphant debut leading Carmen, conducts. ‘I think Don Carlo is the quintessential Verdi opera,’ Hytner says. ‘Right through this opera there is, on the one hand, an implacable expression of impending doom and, on the other hand, a succession of the most gloriously open-throated arias, the most fantastically determined music.’
