Opéra National de Paris
How does a great opera company celebrate a great anniversary?
Well, back in 1991 the Metropolitan Opera marked its 25th year in Lincoln Center by staging Act 1 of Rigoletto, Act 3 of Otello, and Act 2 of Die Fledermaus. We say that if the Met can do it, so can we!
To celebrate our 40th season, we’ve chosen three outstanding acts that epitomize the grandeur, the drama, and the fun of opera: Aida (Act 1), Dialogues of the Carmelites (Act 3), and (hat-tip to the Met) Die Fledermaus (Act 2). Now that’s a New Year’s Gala!
