The Met: Live in HD: “Don Carlos” at Collins Center
April 23 @ 12:00 pm$25 adults; $20 seniors; $10 students
The Collins Center for the Arts will host a broadcast of the Metropolitan Opera’s “Don Carlos” on Saturday, April 23, at noon.
For the first time in company history, the Met presents the original five-act French version of Verdi’s epic opera of doomed love among royalty, set against the backdrop of the Spanish Inquisition. Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads a starry cast, including tenor Matthew Polenzani in the title role and soprano Sonya Yoncheva as Élisabeth de Valois. Bass Günther Groissböck and bass-baritone John Relyea are Philippe II and the Grand Inquisitor, and baritone Étienne Dupuis rounds out the principal cast as Rodrigue.
Verdi’s masterpiece receives a monumental new staging by David McVicar that marks his 11th Met production, placing him among the most prolific and popular directors in recent Met memory.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors (ages 65 and up) and $10 for students.
