Tenor Javier Camarena and soprano Pretty Yende team up for a feast of bel canto vocal fireworks—including the show-stopping tenor aria “Ah! Mes amis,” with its nine high Cs.

In what is expected to be a Wagnerian event for the ages, soprano Christine Goerke plays Brünnhilde, Wotan’s willful warrior daughter, who loses her immortality in opera’s most famous act of filial defiance. Tenor Stuart Skelton and soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek play the incestuous twins Siegmund and Sieglinde. Greer Grimsley sings Wotan. Philippe Jordan conducts.
Dialogues des Carmélites
SAT, MAY 11, 2019 10:00 PM
Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads the classic John Dexter production of Poulenc’s devastating story of faith and martyrdom. Mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard sings the touching role of Blanche and soprano Karita Mattila, a legend in her own time, returns to the Met as the Prioress.
Met in the Schools
Sun Valley Opera’s Community Education
As part of its mission, SVO has been working with local music teachers to educate students about opera by providing free admittance to the MET HD Live series and discounted tickets at its concerts.
In 2011 the organization sent orchestra teacher Rebecca Martin to New York to observe the MET in the Schools program. She has been a wonderful resource and champion of the MET HD:Live series bringing her students to screenings. Last year Sun Valley Opera paid for over 70 students to attend the screenings which Ms. Martin had prepared them for in advance. High school vocal and orchestra students have provided entertainment at our donor parties.
