James Levine

During its 2013-14 season the Metropolitan Opera in New York will present 26 operas with six new productions. Music Director James Levine is supposed to return to the Met podium for a new staging of Giuseppe Verdi’s ‘Falstaff’, directed by Robert Carsen, and revivals of Mozart’s ‘Così fan tutte’ and Alban Berg’s ‘Wozzeck’. Nico Muhly’s ‘Two Boys’, a Met commission, will have its American premiere conducted by David Robertson and directed by Bartlett Sher.

Three well known directors make Met debuts: Deborah Warner with Tchaikovsky’s ‘Eugene Onegin’, Jeremy Sams with a new English-language version of ‘Die Fledermaus’, and Dmitri Tcherniakov with Borodin’s ‘Prince Igor’; Richard Eyre returns to the Met to direct a new production of Massenet’s ‘Werther’.

The eighth season of ‘The Met: Live in HD’ series will feature 10 live transmissions, beginning October 5 with ‘Eugene Onegin’.
