“An artist of the highest caliber,” Peter Mattei’s “luxuriant baritone on its own is a thing of beauty—handsome, generously produced, technically polished, [and] powerful” (Opera News). With The MET Orchestra and Music Director James Levine, he brings his celebrated voice to Mahler’s autobiographical song cycle, inspired by a tumultuous love affair that came to a bitter end. The program also includes Mahler’s Symphony No. 7, a nocturnal musical journey from dusk till dawn.
