Virtual Introduction: Tuesday, April 26 – 7pm ET
Met Performance / Broadcast: Saturday, May 7

Thrilling sopranos Christine Goerke and Liudmyla Monastyrska share the title role of the legendary cold-hearted princess. Tenors Yusif Eyvazov and Yonghoon Lee trade off as the bold prince determined to win Turandot’s love, alongside sopranos Gabriella Reyes, Michelle Bradley, and Ermonela Jaho as the devoted servant Liù and bass-baritone James Morris and basses Alexander Tsymbalyuk and Ferruccio Furlanetto as the blind king Timur. Marco Armiliato conducts Puccini’s stirring score.

Sarah Stephens of Stephens Nicolson Artists Management will offer a virtual introduction on Tuesday, April 26, in advance of the Met’s performance and live broadcast on Saturday, May 7. Please join us with a bowl of popcorn or a glass of wine for Sarah’s opera introduction with our Friends of Freiburg that will enhance your understanding and enjoyment of the opera. This event will be held as a Zoom meeting, so audience members can engage and ask questions if desired — but it is not required to turn your camera on.


Please note that the Metropolitan Opera is no longer offering free nightly streams. Instead, our opera introductions correspond with the weekend Live in HD stream of the production. The opera introduction will take place earlier in the week, and then you are encouraged to view the screening of the opera on an upcoming weekend. Check the schedule at your local cinema for Saturday streams of the performance in a town near you.”
