Opera In Times Square

Opera In Times Square

Last night a 13-year tradition continued as the Metropolitan Opera’s 2018-19 season opened with a live transmission of Saint-Saëns’s biblical epic Samson et Dalila to multiple screens in Times Square.

Darko Tresnjak, who won a Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical in 2014 for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, made his Met debut directing a vivid, seductive staging, featuring a monumental setting for the last-act Temple of Dagon, where the hero crushes his Philistine enemies. Sir Mark Elder conducts the first new Met production of the work in 20 years.

Mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča and tenor Roberto Alagna who joined forces for the new production of Carmen at the Met, reunited for another sensual French opera when they open the season in the title roles of Saint-Saëns’s biblical epic Samson et Dalila. These two are electrifying.

Free seating was available on Duffy Square and the Broadway Plazas between 43rd-44th Streets and 46th-47th Streets. With refreshments available from the TSQ MKT kiosks. With two intermissions the kiosks provided the perfect snacks.
