All radio broadcasts begin at 1:00 p.m.  There are two Live in HD theatercasts this month.  Puccini's La Bohème on April 5, and Mozart's  Così fan tutte on April 26.

4/5       Puccini: La Bohème  Puccini’s moving story of young love is the most performed opera in Met history—and with good reason. Anita Hartig and Barbara Frittoli star as the frail Mimì in Franco Zeffirelli’s classic production, with Vittorio Grigolo in the role of her passionate lover, Rodolfo. Live in HD Theaters

4/12      Giordano:  Andrea Chénier  After their powerful pairing in Il Trovatore, Marcelo Álvarez and Patricia Racette reunite in Giordano’s melodramatic story of life in times of revolutionary fervor, a passionate tale of the ill-fated love of a dashing poet and an aristocratic lady, set against the backdrop of the French Revolution.

4/19      R. Strauss:  Arabella  Swedish soprano Malin Byström stars in the title role of Strauss’s nostalgic romance that explores the fleeting charms of youth, opposite Michael Volle and Juliane Banse. Philippe Auguin conducts.

4/26      Mozart:  Così fan tutte  Music Director James Levine makes his long-awaited return to the Met podium to conduct Mozart’s beloved opera about testing the ties of love. The cast is filled with youthful Met stars: Susanna Phillips and Isabel Leonard are the sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella, Matthew Polenzani and Rodion Pogossov are their lovers, with Danielle de Niese as the scheming Despina.
