Hansel and Gretel (Sung in English)
Engelbert Humperdinck’s retelling of the classic fairy tale pits the two young siblings against a wicked witch in a world full of surrealistic imagery. Suit-clad trees, giant chefs, and some incredibly appetizing architecture all fill the stage. Christine Rice and Aleksandra Kurzak star as Hansel and Gretel while Sir Andrew Davis conducts this family-friendly holiday offering. This production is sung in English.
When Violetta, a high-society courtesan in 19th-century Paris, falls in love with Alfredo Germont, a young nobleman, their romance ignites a powder keg of scandal, deceit, and disgrace—and begins to threaten Violetta’s own failing health. Meanwhile, Verdi’s sumptuous score is so powerful that it’s easy to understand why it caused Julia Roberts to burst into tears during Pretty Woman. Sopranos Marina Rebeka and Sonya Yoncheva share the role of the ill-fated heroine.
Les Contes d’Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann)
Hoffmann, the titular hero-poet of Jacques Offenbach’s magnum opus, regales his audience with tales of romancing three women and of the three villains who thwarted his every attempt at love. After each tale, the stage transforms back into the tavern where Hoffmann drowns his sorrows, a fourth villain plots his downfall, and a fantastical muse longs to reveal herself to him. Thomas Hampson sings the villains, and an impressive pack of actresses share the roles of Hoffmann’s paramours.

About The Metropolitan Opera
Founded smack-dab in the middle of Chester A. Arthur's presidency, The Metropolitan Opera has been a vibrant cultural center for more than 130 years. The Met's accomplished conductors, performers, and composers form a who's who of opera—Arturo Toscanini and Gustav Mahler are among them—and they've premiered some of history's most remarkable works, including those by Wagner and Puccini. The current music director, James Levine, has steered the ship since 1976, witnessing not only the birth of groundbreaking works by Philip Glass and Tobias Picker, but also the creation of new opera fans across the country. In 1977, a televised performance of La Bohème reached more than four million people, leading to regular broadcasts and HD screenings in movie theaters.
Since 1966, the Met's performers have sent their voices soaring in one of the world's most stunning opera houses, designed by architect Wallace K. Harrison. Past the lobby's two towering Marc Chagall paintings, twinkling Viennese chandeliers light the way to nearly 4,000 seats. There, the auditorium's timeless design blends seamlessly with technology: on each seat back, a small screen displays simultaneous translation through the company's unique Met Titles system, granting audiences the chance to follow the libretto in English, Spanish, or German.
