Met Season Leaked

Over at the clever, stylish, sometimes b*tchy, and always up-to-date Parterre Box blog, La Cieca shares the 2013 – 2014 Met Opera Schedule with the world. Thank you Opera Lady!

Click on over to the post at Parterre Box for full coverage, complete with dates & casts (including frequent appearances by that ubiquitous singer, TBA). But before you go I’d just like to highlight a few items of special interest (to RnR, anyway): two English National Opera productions: Eugene Onegin and Two Boys (those are two separate operas, by the way), Werther with JK, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Robert Carsen’s Falstaff, Rusalka with some top-shelf girl singers, Prince Igor, a handful of Strauss operas, and of course, a host of the usual suspects (Boheme, Butterfly, Tosca, etc.)


  1. I'm praying for a HD for ALL THE STRAUSS. Or at least Rosenkavalier (ehm, obvious reasons), although I have my doubts about Erdmann.
    But Cenerentola with DiDonato and Pisaroni? Be still, my beating heart. That should be tons of fun. And I'm looking forward to Midsummer, Davies is one of my very favorite countertenors.

    (And Gelb, while we're at the bel canto stuff, it's high time I Capuleti had a premiere at the Met too.)

  2. Hasn't the Met already HD'd Rosenkavalier? Would love to see the other Strausses and the Britten. The rest I feel a bit meh! about though a Wozzeck HD would be nice. They really should have done that when held and Skelton were singing though.

  3. Seconded for Wozzeck, though I'd be happy to wait for a different cast. And I'd love to see them attempt the Wernicke Frau, though I wonder how well it would translate to screen.

  4. Looks pretty good to me too - hope I can catch both Eugene Onegin and all available Strauss.

    1. I am enthusiastic about several performers even more than necessarily the operas. If only we could get them all into one performance! I am definitely going to plan my other activities more carefully around the HD broadcasts next year. And maybe even make a pilgrimage to NYC.
