The Met: Live in HD presents Werther by Massenet during April

“A taut drama about passion, obsession and pursuit… with Mr Eyre’s fiercely precise directing and the riveting performances of tenor Jonas Kaufmann as the unhappy Werther and mezzo Sophie Koch —making her house debut—as Charlotte, the woman he loves. The dark, resonant timbre of [Kaufmann’s] tenor gives him weight; its swordlike directness makes him unstoppable. Every moment has the exact vocal color it needs.”— The Wall Street Journal

The Met: Live In HD Presents La Bohème By Puccini

“[Vittorio Grigolo] sang with warmth and vigor, in his element as a passionate, boyish Rodolfo. Making her house debut was Anita Hartig, an admirable soprano who has sung the role of Mimi recently at Covent Garden and La Scala. She imbued her singing with both a shy plaintiveness and ardency in “Mi chiamano Mimì. ” — The New York Times
