Summer Recital Series

The Mets popular concert series in New York City parks of all five boroughs kicks off on Wednesday, June 22 at Summerstage in Central Park, with an evening of favorite arias and duets from a variety of operas. The first two recitals feature soprano Angel Blue—a rising star who will make her Met debut in a future season—tenor Ben Bliss, and baritone Alexey Lavrov, joined by pianist Dan Saunders. The four July recitals showcase three members of the Met’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program—soprano Michelle Bradley, tenor Kang Wang, and baritone Yunpeng Wang—also accompanied by Saunders.

Recitals are free.
