The MET Orchestra Chamber Ensemble

Sunday, November 13, 2022 2 PM Weill Recital Hall
Yannick Nézet-Séguin by Hans van der Woerd, Joyce DiDonato by Simon Pauly
In this incredibly rare collaboration in the intimate Weill Recital Hall, select members of The MET Orchestra join conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin and renowned mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato for a program of unique musical storytelling. Included are selections from Pulitzer Prize winner Kevin Puts’s opera The Hours (2022), which makes its New York debut this fall at the Metropolitan Opera and features a role written specifically for DiDonato. Also featured is Stravinsky’s classic A Soldier’s Tale with text adapted by Kurt Vonnegut in 1993 to tell an entirely new tale based on his nonfiction book The Execution of Private Slovak.
