For the first time in the company’s history, the Met presents the original five-act French version of Verdi’s epic opera about a doomed love between royalty, set against the backdrop of the Spanish Inquisition. Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads a world-class opera cast that includes tenor Matthew Polenzani in the lead role, soprano Sonya Yoncheva as Élisabeth de Valois and mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton as Eboli. Bass Eric Owens and bass-baritone John Relyea are Philippe II and the Grand Inquisitor, and baritone Étienne Dupuis rounds out the all-star principal cast as Rodrigue. Verdi’s masterpiece receives a monumental new staging by David McVicar that marks his 11th Met production, placing him among the most prolific and popular directors in recent Met memory.
