Special Fathom Features: Go behind the scenes with the Met's stars! During intermission, interviews with cast, crew and production teams give a revealing look at what goes into the staging of an opera.
An encore performance of Gounod's Roméo et Juliette will be shown in select cinemas on Wednesday, January 25 at 6:30 p.m. local time. Please note: not all cinemas showing the live transmission will present an encore showing.
The electrifying team of Vittorio Grigolo and Diana Damrau reunites for a new production of Gounod’s opera based on the Shakespeare play. Damrau makes her role debut as Juliette in Bartlett Sher’s new production, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda. Elliot Madore sings Mercutio and Mikhail Petrenko sings Frère Laurent. Sher’s staging is a La Scala production, initially presented by the Salzburg Festival, where it premiered in 2008.
