Angela Gheorghiu will perform in Romeo and Juliette in 2011 at the MET

And the rumours were true. Angela stars in Romeo and Juliette next to Piotr Beczala. And Placido Domingo is conducting. March 3rd to March 26th, 7 performances with the same cast.
Another confirmed rumour is Roberto's presence in Don Carlo, in some of the performances between November 22nd and December 18th.
What else is there?
* Armida and Capriccio with Renee Fleming
*Boris Godunov with Rene Pape
*Carmen with Elina Garanca
*Le Comte Ory with Damrau/Di Donato/Florez
*Don Pasquale with Anna Netrebko
*Simon Boccanegra with Fritoli/Vargas/Hvorostovki/Furlanetto
*Tosca with Radvanovky/Alvarez and Urmana/Licitra
*Die Walkure with Kaufmann/Voight/Terfel/Blythe
And many more. See all the details on the MET Web Site
Playbill Arts also mentions the new Live in HD Season. Sorry, no Romeo&Juliette :( but Don Carlo is included. Read the ARTICLE for a very comprehensive review of the new season at the MET.
The Met: Live in HD 2010-11 Series
The 2010-11 season of The Met: Live in HD will feature 11 transmissions, beginning on October 9 with Das Rheingold and continuing with Boris Godunov (October 23), Don Pasquale (November 13), Don Carlo (December 11), La Fanciulla del West (January 8), Iphigénie en Tauride (February 26), Lucia di Lammermoor (March 19), Le Comte Ory (April 9), Capriccio (April 23), Il Trovatore (April 30), and Die Walküre (May 14). The company’s enormously successful, Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series of live transmissions into movie theaters in 44 countries and more than 1000 theaters around the world has sold more than 1.8 million tickets so far during the 2009-10 season. With two transmissions remaining in the fourth season of the popular series (Hamlet on March 27 and Armida on May 1) attendance is expected to exceed two million, effectively tripling the Met’s paying audience (approximately 800,000 people attend performances in the opera house in a Met season).
New York Times also brings bad news for Met goers: The cost of an average individual ticket will rise by 11 percent, while subscriber tickets will go up an average of 6 percent. But the productions there worth spending more money, right?


  1. Looks like a good season! Even though Angela isn't in it, I really want to see Nixon In China!

  2. She is. Only one, but she's there. This could mean more for Europe. We'll see. No theatre in Europe has announced the new season yet.
    I'd like to see Die Walkure. I hope the cinema that broadcasts the Met Live in HD will hang on till next year.
