Adriadne Auf Naxos

Saturday, March 12, 2022
Meal: 10:55 am Show : 11:55am

The Ariadne myth tells how Prince Theseus of Athens set out for Crete to kill the Minotaur, a creature half man, half bull, who was concealed in a labyrinth. Princess Ariadne of Crete fell in love with Theseus and gave him a ball of thread that enabled him to find his way out of the labyrinth after he had killed the Minotaur. When Theseus left Crete, he took Ariadne with him as his bride. During their voyage home, they stopped at the island of Naxos. While Ariadne was asleep, Theseus slipped away and continued his journey to Athens without her. The opera Ariadne auf Naxos begins at this point.

Don Carlos

Meal: 10:55 am Show : 11:55am

In Don Carlos, his grand drama of Inquisition-era Spain, Verdi wages a war of ideas, pitting his own humanist ideals against an unholy union of church and state. This season, the Met rallies its troops for a new production of this innovative and complex masterpiece, presented for the first time in company history in the original five-act French version. Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads an unbeatable cast in a staging by David McVicar that taps into the darkness and despair of a people suffocated by tyranny, as well as the poignancy of their hopeless yet heroic struggle for freedom.

Turandot

Saturday, May 21, 2022
Meal: 10:55 am Show : 11:55am

In Gozzi’s play, the original commedia dell’arte characters wandered from Italy to China and were members of the Imperial court. Their comments satirized Venetian politics and mores of the times. Puccini and his librettists dispensed with any such relevance. The China of this opera, set in “legendary times,” is a mythic realm viewed from the exoticizing perspective of 20th-century Europeans.

Lucia Di Lammermoor

Saturday, May 28
Meal: 10:55 am Show : 11:55am

World premiere: Teatro San Carlo, Naples, 1835
The character of Lucia has become an icon in opera and beyond, an archetype of the constrained woman asserting herself in society. She reappears as a touchstone for such diverse later characters as Flaubert’s adulterous Madame Bovary and the repressed Englishmen in the novels of E. M. Forster. The insanity that overtakes and destroys Lucia, depicted in opera’s most celebrated mad scene, has especially captured the public imagination. Donizetti’s handling of this fragile woman’s state of mind remains seductively beautiful, thoroughly compelling, and deeply disturbing.

Hamlet 

Saturday, June 11, 2022
Meal: 10:55 am Show : 11:55am

Some of the world’s greatest composers have looked to the works of Shakespeare for inspiration, a tradition that continued with the 2017 premiere of Brett Dean’s Hamlet. The Bard’s immortal tragedy is among theater’s most captivating psychological portraits, and the incorporation of music—including tour-de-force vocal writing, imposing choral forces, and a powerful orchestral sweep—only escalates the tension of this classic tale.
