The 2019-2020 season of The Met: Live in HD will open at the Warner Theatre on October 12 with Puccini’s TURANDOT. The 2019-2020 season is sponsored by Viron Rondo Osteria. A complimentary 45 minute pre-opera lecture by Dr. Marguerite Mullee will be offered in the Studio Theatre Lobby two hours before the broadcast, sponsored by Land Rover Hartford.
Thrilling dramatic soprano Christine Goerke brings her fierce portrayal of the title princess with Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium for Franco Zeffirelli’s dazzling production of Puccini’s final masterpiece. Yusif Eyvazov will sing the mysterious prince Calàf in the performance, replacing Roberto Aronica, who has withdrawn for personal reasons, alongside soprano Eleonora Buratto as Liù and bass-baritone James Morris as Timur.
