Whether its social or cultural one, we unconsciously give up on any hope to rejoice at any meaningful events, including the beloved opera performances. Fear no more, Met Stars Live is coming to your mind cave to save you from boredom and spread joy with the harmonic cheer of the renowned performers from around the world.
The rays of musical enlightenment in the face of Opera’s greatest stars will pierce the electronic screens with groundbreaking new series of pay-per-view recitals by Metropolitan Opera House. These concerts, each live via satellite and shot with multiple cameras, will take place in an unexpected and majestic location like a German industrial cathedral – Jahrhunderthalle – a grand Norwegian castle, an alluring terrace on a cliff with a Mediterranean backdrop, a church in Wales, and a historic mansion in Washington, D.C. In other words, the audience will have a chance to watch remarkable solo and duo performances by top singers worldwide. The performers will include Joyce DiDonato, Anna Netrebko, Diana Damrau and Joseph Calleja, Pretty Yende and Javier Camarena, Sonya Yoncheva, Angel Blue, Piotr Beczała and Sondra Radvanovsky, and Bryn Terfel.
