One of the Metropolitan Opera's leading dramatic sopranos, Christine Goerke, will take the lead role in front of a stunning stage design featuring the picturesque and grandiose theatrical scenery of the legendary Franco Zeffirelli. Roberto Aronica, one of the pre-eminent performers of bel canto and verismo opera, will take to the stage as Goerke's partner in the role of Calàf. The role of the slave girl Liù will be brought to life through the beautiful voice of Eleonora Buratto, while Timur, the deposed King of Tartary, will be played by the outstanding American baritone James Morris, one of the core members of the company. The production will be conducted by the music director of the Metropolitan Opera, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, famed for his vibrant and majestic performances.
The 'Metropolitan Opera Live in HD' transmissions have been made possible through the cooperation of our partner, Cikánek Management.
