A tradition is being lost at the Met

While the season opener at New York’s famed Metropolitan Opera is often drawn from the great operatic repertoire, Peter Gelb has chosen a contemporary opera for his 2023-2024 season for a change! Jake Heggie and his opera Dead Man Walking, first performed in San Franciso in 2000, will headline the season with superstar Joyce DiDonato. The premiere of the new production, directed by Ivo van Hove, will take place on 26 September 2023.
