The MET Orchestra

Description Program Artists

All events for the second half of the 2020–2021 season are still planned, but cannot currently be booked. Advance ticket sales have been interrupted. The current experience with the coronavirus pandemic has shown us that in the event of strong demand (above the currently permitted 500 guests), advance sales can only be expanded once the official approval has been given to open the hall accordingly. We will continue to publish or confirm the final program six weeks before the scheduled event.

According to the long-standing rule, the Met doesn’t travel, you travel to the Met. Exceptions have been known to happen, even if only every 100 years: the last time the Met visited Baden-Baden was around 1920 – at the Kurhaus, with instruments, stage sets, and costumes borrowed in Karlsruhe and Stuttgart. At the time, the Festspielhaus was only a railway station that welcomed musical adventurers from afar. Today, a century later, some of the details have changed, but otherwise we can confidently proclaim: the Met is back! The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, its Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and the two Wagner stars Brandon Jovanovich and Günther Groissböck will be demonstrating why the company has been known for decades as the premier address for classical music on the American continent. As a theater institution, they have fittingly chosen the concert version of the first act of Wagner’s Die Walküre with its celebrated love duet. In the program’s first half, the orchestra will shine with Strauss and American opera music.
