After one of the most challenging years in the company’s history, the Met left 2020 on a high note, presenting a live New Year’s Eve Gala featuring a quartet of extraordinary artists. As part of the Met Stars Live in Concert series, sopranos Angel Blue and Pretty Yende and tenors Javier Camarena and Matthew Polenzani came together at the Parktheater in Augsburg, Germany, to perform a program packed with popular operatic excerpts. Accompanied by pianist Cécile Restier and the Vienna Morphing Quintet, the evening featured arias and ensembles by Donizetti, Puccini, Rossini, Verdi, and more—as well as some festive Italian songs. A delightful and uplifting musical event, the concert had viewers worldwide smiling long after the clock struck midnight.
