METROPOLITAN OPERA’S OPENING NIGHT LIVESTREAM: “MEDEA”

September 27 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Free

Tickets or RSVPs are not required to attend this FREE performance and admission is first come first serve. Seating will be available. 

The Metropolitan Opera opens its 2022–23 season with the company premiere of Cherubini’s masterpiece Medea Tuesday, September 27, 2022. Following triumphant performances at the Met as some of the repertory’s most dramatic heroines, Sondra Radvanovsky sings Medea for the first time, taking on the tour-de-force role made famous by Maria Callas.

A live simulcast of the opening night performance on Tuesday, September 27 at 6:00 pm ET will be presented free to the public in Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park for the second year, in partnership with Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage and NYC Parks.

In this fiery retelling of the Greek myth, the sorceress Medea embodies the archetype of a woman betrayed by powerful men and shunned by society. She embraces her rage, in the end murdering her two children as a supreme act of vengeance against her faithless lover Giasone, their father.
