Emmanuel Vuillaume will conduct the new production of Tosca on New Yearís Eve, and most of the run.

Hereís the Metís announcement:

Casting Update: Emmanuel Villaume will conduct the Metís new production of Tosca on December 31, 2017, and January 3, 6, 9, 12, 23, and 27, 2018, replacing James Levine.

Maestro Villaume, who recently conducted Massenetís ThaÔs at the Met, is Music Director of the Dallas Opera and Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Prague Philharmonia. He made his Met debut in 2004 conducting Pucciniís Madama Butterfly, and his subsequent performances with the company have included Saint-SaŽnsís Samson et Dalila, Bizetís Carmen, Massenetís Manon and Gounodís Romťo et Juliette.


Sir David McVicarís new staging of Tosca opens on December 31, with Sonya Yoncheva as Tosca, Vittorio Grigolo as Cavaradossi, and Bryn Terfel as Scarpia. The January 27 matinee will be transmitted live as part of the Metís Live in HD series, which reaches more than 2,000 movie theaters in 73 countries around the world.

Later performances on April 21, 26 and 30, and May 4, 8 and 12, 2018, will star Anna Netrebko in the title role opposite Marcelo Ńlvarez as Cavaradossi and Michael Volle and éeljko Lučić sharing the role of Scarpia. The April and May performances will be conducted by Bertrand de Billy.
