Star countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo is the title pharaoh, the revolutionary ruler who transformed ancient Egypt, with the striking mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges in her Met debut as his wife, Nefertiti. To match the opera’s hypnotic, ritualistic music, McDermott has created an arresting vision that includes a virtuosic company of acrobats and jugglers. Karen Kamensek conducts in her Met debut.

A TUNA CHRISTMAS
A Comedy by JASTON WILLIAMS, JOE SEARS, and ED HOWARD
Directed by GUS KAIKKONEN
Featuring TOM FREY and KRAIG SWARTZ
December 5-15

In this boisterous and hilarious romp, Players’ favorites and masters of comedy Tom Frey and Kraig Swartz portray over 20 different characters – everyone in this tiny, tight-knit, irreverent town of Tuna, Texas. As usual, the annual tree decorating contest is underway, and who knows if Vera Carp will once again take the prize. Jim Bob is trying to salvage the local theatre production of A Christmas Carol from both the town censors and the wrath of the electric company. Didi is arming the good people in town with protection against the Christmas Phantom, who’s wreaking holiday havoc and may or (may not!) be Bertha’s fresh-from-probation son, Stanley. And everyone just wants a burger from the Tastee Kreme. Welcome to Christmas in the Greater Tuna area – a great way to add a laugh to your holidays.

A Tuna Christmas features Tom Frey (2 Pianos, 4 Hands) and Kraig Swartz (Fully Committed).

THIS VERSE BUSINESS
By A.M. Dolan
Directed by Gus Kaikkonen
Featuring Gordon Clapp
February 6–16

The perfect marriage between a treasured American poet and a beloved actor, Emmy-winner (NYPD Blue) and Tony-nominee Gordon Clapp returns for an encore performance as Robert Frost in A.M Dolan’s This Verse Business. Fresh from the Lincoln Center production of The Great Society, Clapp once again breathes life into Frost, poised and waiting for the birth of a new poem. “Why don’t I say some poems to ya I’ve already written...and we’ll see if another one creeps up on me.” Frost’s endless quest to express life through metaphor – and encourage the reader to find their own meaning of life – is beautifully captured through this intimate moment between actor and audience, featuring timeless Frost classics such as Mending Wall, The Road Not Taken and Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening.

This Verse Business features Gordon Clapp (Stella and Lou).

Handel’s Agrippina


Handel’s tale of intrigue and impropriety in ancient Rome receives its first Met performances, with star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina and Harry Bicket conducting. Sir David McVicar’s production ingeniously reframes the action of this black comedy about the abuse of power to “the present,” where it should loudly resonate. The all-star cast features mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey as Agrippina’s son and future emperor Nerone, soprano Brenda Rae as the seductive Poppea, countertenor Iestyn Davies as the ambitious officer Ottone, and bass Matthew Rose as the weary emperor Claudius.

Wagner’s Der Fliegende Hollander

The great bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel returns to the company for the first time since 2012, in the title role of the cursed sea captain doomed to sail the open ocean for eternity. Valery Gergiev conducts a new production by François Girard, whose visionary 2013 take on Parsifal set the recent Met standard for Wagner stagings. With sweeping sets by John Macfarlane, Girard’s new production turns the Met stage into a rich, layered tableau reminiscent of a vast oil painting. The gifted German soprano Anja Kampe, in her Met debut, is the devoted Senta, whose selfless love is what the Dutchman seeks, with bass Franz-Josef Selig as her father, Daland, and tenor Sergey Skorokhodov as her deserted former lover, Erik.
