Opening Night of the 2022–23 season will showcase the Met premiere of Cherubini’s rarely-performed Medea, made famous by opera’s ultimate diva, Maria Callas.
Following her triumphant performances at the Met in some of the repertory’s most thrilling soprano roles, Sondra Radvanovsky portrays the title character, a mythic sorceress who will stop at nothing in her quest for vengeance. The opera marks Radvanovsky’s fourth new production with David McVicar, who also designs the vivid sets for this staging. Joining Radvanovsky is tenor Matthew Polenzani as Medea’s Argonaut husband, Giasone; soprano Janai Brugger as her rival for his love, Glauce; bass Michele Pertusi as her father, Creonte, the King of Corinth; and mezzo-soprano Ekaterina Gubanova as Medea’s confidante, Neris. Carlo Rizzi conducts Cherubini’s masterpiece.
Tickets: $24 general admission, $21 member, $15 child (age 14 or younger).
