In 2018, Montreal-born conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin took the podium as the Met’s Jeanette Lerman-Neubauer Music Director, becoming only the third person in the company’s 135-year history to hold the esteemed post. One of today’s most charismatic talents, Nézet-Séguin made his Met debut on New Year’s Eve 2009, conducting the premiere of new production of Bizet’s Carmen, and has since gone on to lead more than 100 performances with the company. In this new documentary from award-winning filmmaker Susan Froemke—whose other recent projects include the critically acclaimed films The Opera House, Wagner’s Dream, and The Audition—follow the maestro on his journey from ten-year-old budding conductor to the pinnacles of the musical world.
