Overview

After 16 months of closure, the Met has had to make some changes to the start of the 2021–22 season to accommodate the necessary technical preparations. As a result, the October 7 performance of Turandot has been canceled. All other performances will proceed as scheduled.

Two of today’s most thrilling voices share the title role of the legendary cold-hearted princess: Christine Goerke, the Met’s reigning dramatic soprano, and superstar Anna Netrebko, making her long-awaited Met role debut after providing a hair-raising preview in 2019’s New Year’s Eve Gala. Tenors Yusif Eyvazov and Yonghoon Lee trade off as the bold prince determined to win Turandot’s love, alongside sopranos Gabriella Reyes, Michelle Bradley, and Ermonela Jaho as the devoted servant Liù and bass-baritone James Morris and basses Alexander Tsymbalyuk and Ferruccio Furlanetto as the blind king Timur. Marco Armiliato conducts Puccini’s stirring score.
