MET Opera HD LIVE 2018-19 Season

The Met: Live in HD, the Metropolitan Opera’s award-winning series of live high-definition cinema simulcasts, will begin its 13th season on October 6, with the Met’s grand production of Verdi’s Aida, starring one of the world’s most acclaimed sopranos, Anna Netrebko. The company also announced that Yannick Nézet-Séguin will become the Met’s Music Director for the start of the 2018–19 season, accelerating his arrival in the post by two seasons.

“It is wonderful for the entire company that Yannick Nézet-Séguin will assume the position of Music Director two seasons ahead of schedule,” said General Manager Peter Gelb. “The orchestra loves him, the chorus loves him, everyone in the building loves him. He is a truly great artist under whom the Met will only thrive.” It was also announced that the Neubauer Family Foundation, founding sponsors of the Met’s Live in HD transmissions to movie theaters, has made a $15 million gift to name the Music Director position in honor of Nézet-Séguin’s appointment. In recognition of this gift, the position will be called the Jeanette Lerman-Neubauer Music Director. Gelb said, “The Met is so fortunate to be the recipient of such enlightened and generous philanthropy from two of our most loyal supporters, who believe in the power of transformative gifts.”

Met: Live in HD is the largest provider of alternative cinema content in the world, with more than 24 million tickets sold since the inception of the series in 2006. The series brings live Met performances to more than 2,200 movie theaters and performing arts centers in more than 70 countries.

ABOUT the Metropolitan Opera

The MET Opera

Known as the venue for the world’s greatest voices, The Metropolitan Opera was founded in 1883, with its first opera house built on Broadway and 39th Street by a group of wealthy businessmen who wanted their own theatre. In the company’s early years, the management changed course several times, first performing everything in Italian (even Carmen and Lohengrin), then everything in German (even Aida and Faust), before finally settling into a policy of performing most works in their original language, with some notable exceptions.

The Metropolitan Opera is a vibrant home for the most creative and talented singers, conductors, composers, musicians, stage directors, designers, visual artists, choreographers, and dancers from around the world. The Met has been elevating its theatrical standards by significantly increasing the number of new productions, staged by the most imaginative directors working in theatre and opera, and has launched a series of initiatives to broaden its reach internationally. These efforts to win new audiences prominently include the successful Live in HD series of high-definition performance transmissions to movie theatres everywhere.
