This event has now passed.

Bizet's rarely heard opera returned to The Met for the first time in a century on New Year's Eve 2015, in Penny Woolcock's acclaimed production. Star soprano Diana Damrau sings Leïla, the virgin priestess at the centre of the story. Matthew Polenzani and Mariusz Kwiecien are Nadir and Zurga, rivals for Leïla's love who have sworn to renounce her to protect their friendship - and who get to sing one of opera's most celebrated duets, 'Au fond du temple saint'. Nicolas Testé is the high priest Nourabad and Gianandrea Noseda conducts Bizet's supremely romantic score. French with Chinese subtitles.
