The Metropolitan Opera at home gala


26 (Sunday) 5:00 am - 27 (Monday) 10:30 am NZST

Event Details

In its most ambitious effort yet to bring the joy and artistry of opera to audiences everywhere during the Met’s closure, the company will present an unprecedented virtual At-Home Gala, featuring more than 40 leading artists performing in a live stream from their homes all around the world.

The event will take place Saturday, April 25, at 1 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), and will be available for FREE on the Met’s website.

General Manager Peter Gelb and Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin will host from their homes in New York City and Montreal, respectively.

Mr. Nézet-Séguin will also participate in the gala as a pianist, and will be featured as conductor in pre-recorded performances by the Met Orchestra and Chorus, which will be created from individual takes from the homes of each of the musicians in the days leading up to the gala.

After the live showing, the gala will continue to be accessible on demand on the Met website until 6:30 p.m. EDT the following day.

The At-Home Gala is part of the Met’s urgent “The Voice Must Be Heard” fundraising campaign to support the company and protect its future.

This gala is generously sponsored by Mercedes T. Bass and Rolex.
