Kevin Puts' The Hours, based on the acclaimed novel by Michael Cunningham that was adapted into the 2002 Oscar-winning film, gets its world debut. The work features music by Yannick Nezet Seguin conducting a trio of star singers: Renée Fleming—who makes her highly anticipated return to the Met—soprano Kelli O'Hara and mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato.

Following the historic Met premiere of Fire Shut Up in my Bones, Terence Blanchard's second Met premiere, Champion, arrives in the spring. Maestro Nézet-Séguin conducts the opera about the life of boxer Emile Griffith, with choreography by Camille A. Brown. Another company premiere is Cherubini's Medea, starring soprano Sondra Radvanovsky in the title role alongside tenor Matthew Polenzani in David McVicar's new staging, conducted by Carlo Rizzi.

Four more new productions are Giordano's Fedora, starring soprano Sonya Yoncheva in the title role, with Marco Armiliato conducting. Maestro Nézet-Séguin will conduct François Girard's new production of Wagner's Lohengrin with Beczała in the title role.

In May 2023, Nathalie Stutzmann makes her Met conducting debut with two new productions of beloved works by Mozart: Don Giovanni and Die Zauberflöte.

Returning favorites include two of Verdi's beloved masterpieces: the ever-popular La Traviata with a vibrant production by Michael Mayer's; the glorious Shakespearean comedy Falstaff, conducted by Maestro Daniele Rustioni; and Strauss's bittersweet Der Rosenkavalier, with conductor Simone Young overseeing Robert Carsen's fin-de-siècle staging.

Transmitted to 70 countries and hosted by Metropolitan Opera stars, this award-winning series provides an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at the world's greatest opera house. Learn more about The Met: Live in HD >
