NEW PRODUCTION!    The Met stage ignites when soprano Kristine Opolais and tenor Roberto Alagna (in his first-ever performances of des Grieux!) join forces in Puccini’s obsessive love story. Opolais sings the title role of the country girl who transforms herself into a Parisian temptress, while Alagna is the dashing student who desperately woos her. Director Richard Eyre places the action in occupied France in a film noir setting. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads the stirring score.

Conductor: Fabio Luisi Production: Richard Eyre Cast: Kristine Opolais, Roberto Alagna

Sung in Italian with Met Titles in English

Approximate running time: 3 hours 15 minutes inc. intermission
