Greatly reduced capacity for this event.
While stages across the world are dark, we are thrilled to bring to the Big Screen these two superstars’ Met Stars Live in Concert performances that were originally broadcast last summer! This two-hour special screening will feature Renée Fleming’s August 1st live broadcast from the Dumbarton Oaks estate in Washington, DC as well Jonas Kaufmann‘s July 18th concert from Germany.
Renée Fleming: On August 1, 2020, America’s beloved diva performed live in the intimate and iconic American venue: the music salon of Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, D.C. The program, with accompaniment by Robert Ainsley, will show off Fleming’s wide repertoire, from favorite arias by Puccini and Massenet to moving selections by Handel and Korngold.
Jonas Kaufmann: Superstar tenor Jonas Kaufmann opened the new Met Stars Live in Concert series last summer on July 18 and performed 12 of the most popular, show-stopping arias in the operatic repertoire. The concert was broadcast live via satellite from the ornate Polling Abbey, located in the rolling Bavarian countryside outside Munich, Germany. The grand Baroque interior of the historic venue serves as a perfect setting for a performance showing off Kaufmann’s prowess in a collection of strenuous and spectacular showcases for the tenor voice, including “Nessun dorma” from Turandot and “E lucevan le stelle” from Tosca, among many others.
