Live from the New York Met Opera: Medea
22 October @ 5:55 pm - 9:00 pm
The new season’s Live from the New York Met series launches with this magical and bloodthirsty tour de force!
Having triumphed at the Met in some of the repertory’s fiercest soprano roles, Sondra Radvanovsky stars as the mythic sorceress who will stop at nothing in her quest for vengeance. The Met premiere of Cherubini’s rarely performed masterpiece marks Radvanovsky’s fourth new production with director David McVicar, who also designed the sets for this vivid, atmospheric staging. Simultaneously classical, updated, and timeless. Joining Radvanovsky are tenor Matthew Polenzani as Medea’s Argonaut husband, Giasone; soprano Janai Brugger as her rival for his love, Glauce; bass Michele Pertusi as her father, Creonte, the King of Corinth; and mezzo-soprano Ekaterina Gubanova as Medea’s confidante, Neris. Maestro Carlo Rizzi conducts.
These stunning, modern productions feature exclusive, live backstage footage and cast interviews shown during the intervals.
