Looking Back: 12 Years of The MET: Live in HD in Hong Kong

Looking Back: 12 Years of The MET: Live in HD in Hong Kong brings you three French operas in the encore season this year! In Massenet’s Werther, star tenor Jonas Kaufmann brings aching intensity and vocal charisma to the tortured title hero, Sophie Koch, is an appealing and elegant Charlotte, the object of Werther’s passionate affection that will lead to tragedy. Richard Eyre’s atmospheric production is conducted by rising maestro Alain Altinoglu. Kaufmann will also sing the title role in Gounod’s Faust, adapted from the classic German legend. René Pape as Méphistophélès is menacing and elegant in equal measure, and Marina Poplavskaya delivers a searingly intense portrayal of the innocent Marguerite. This thrilling production is by Des McAnuff, Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts. Exhilarating soprano Lisette Oropesa shines as the title role in Massenet’s Manon, the young girl who is so obsessed with money that it leads to her tragic demise. This performance also features tenor Michael Fabiano as the impetuous Chevalier des Grieux and baritone Artur Ruciński as Lescaut. Maurizio Benini is on the podium to lead one of the most passionate scores in the French operatic repertoire.
