Event Description:

When Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo starred opposite each other in "Manon" at the Met in 2015, the New York Times said, “the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Damrau and Grigolo are on stage together.” Now they’re back as opera’s classic lovers, in Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation.

Bartlett Sher’s new production has already won acclaim for its vivid 18th-century milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the sumptuous score. The event is hosted by Kari and Greg Steinke.
