The Metropolitan Opera celebrates the holidays this year with four spectacular productions of audience favorites, including two of the company’s popular family presentations, as well as a special concert series of Verdi’s Requiem, conducted by James Levine. Don’t miss your chance to spend the season with the world’s greatest singers on the world’s greatest stage.

For the first time since 2008, James Levine conducts a special series of concerts of Verdi’s great mass, featuring a quartet of extraordinary soloists.

The Magic Flute


The Met’s abridged, English-language version of Mozart’s enchanting masterpiece returns in Julie Taymor’s eye-popping, puppet-filled production.

Le Nozze di Figaro


Mozart’s comic yet profound masterpiece explores love, betrayal, and human nature over the course of one crazy day in an aristocratic Spanish household.

The Merry Widow


A fabulously wealthy woman sets out to conquer glamorous old Paris and get the one thing that has eluded her—a commitment from her playboy first love. 

Hansel and Gretel


The second of the Met’s English-language family presentations, Richard Jones’s production offers a delightfully twisted take on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale.

Open House

December 28

Continuing a holiday tradition, the Met welcomes audiences of all ages for an open house prior to the December 28 matinee presentation of Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel.
