For the first time in company history, the Met presents the original five-act French version of Verdi's epic opera of doomed love among royalty, set against the backdrop of the Spanish Inquisition.

Yannick Nezet-Seguin leads a world-beating cast of opera's leading lights in this performance, including tenor Matthew Polenzani in the title role, soprano Sonya Yoncheva as Elisabeth de Valois, and mezzo-soprano Elina Garanca as Eboli.  Gunther Groissbock and bass-baritone John Relyea are Philippe II and the Grand Inquisitor, and baritone Etienne Dupuis rounds out the all-star principal cast as Rodrigue.

Verdi's masterpiece receives a monumental new staging by David McVicar that marks his 11th Met production, placing him among the most prolific and popular directors in recent Met memory.

Sung in French with English subtitles, the production runs four hours, 55 minutes with two intermissions.

Live at the Met is underwritten with support from Daniel S. Kaufman and Timothy W. Beaver
