Bartlett Sher’s bold new take on Verdi’s timeless tragedy arrives onscreen on January 29. The
Tony Award–winning director resets the opera’s action in 1920s Europe, with Art Deco sets by
Michael Yeargan and elegant costumes by Catherine Zuber, themselves boasting a combined
eight Tony Awards. Baritone Quinn Kelsey, a commanding artist at the height of his powers,
brings his searing portrayal of the title role to the Met for the first time, starring alongside
soprano Rosa Feola as Gilda and tenor Piotr Beczała as the Duke of Mantua, with leading
maestro Daniele Rustioni on the podium. A second run of performances in the spring features
baritone Ludovic Tézier, soprano Kristina Mkhitaryan, and tenor Stephen Costello, conducted
by Karel Mark Chichon.
