Metropolitan Opera

The Met’s 2018-2019 season opens on Sept. 24, 2018, with the company’s first new production of Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Samson et Dalila” in 20 years.

Other new productions this season are Nico Muhly’s “Marnie,” with a libretto by Nicholas Wright and direction by Michael Mayer; Giuseppe Verdi’s “La Traviata,” also staged by Michael Mayer; and Francesco Cilea’s “Adriana Lecouvreur,” with soprano Anna Netrebko in the title role.

Three complete cycles of Richard Wagner’s “Ring” return for the first time in six years.

In spring 2019, a gala on April 28 celebrates the 50th anniversary of tenor Plácido Domingo’s Met debut.

•  Operas are traditionally sung in their language of origin; Met Titles is the name of the system created by and used at the Metropolitan Opera by which English translations are projected on individual screens on seat backs. Patrons have the option of turning Met Titles on or off.
