The Metropolitan Opera’s 2017-2018 season features works by a number of notable composers, including Giacomo Puccini, Richard Strauss, Giuseppe Verdi, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The season kicked off in late September 2017 with The Tales of Hoffmann, by Jacques Offenbach. Another early opening in the season was Puccini’s La Bohème, which will run at the Met through March 10, 2018.
In 2018, highlights will include Verdi’s Luisa Miller, Strauss’ Elektra, and Puccini’s Tosca. On April 29, opera fans can attend the National Council Grand Finals Concert, which will feature some of opera’s rising stars. Several gala premiere events will also be held at the Met in 2018. Featuring cocktail receptions and black-tie dinners, the gala premieres will take place prior to the openings of Mozart’s Così fan Tutte on March 15 and Jules Massenet’s Cendrillon on April 12.
