Carnegie Hall Presents

The MET Orchestra

Thursday, June 22, 2023 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Yannick Nézet-Séguin by Rose Callahan, Renée Fleming by Andrew Eccles, Russell Thomas by Fay Fox
In the ensemble’s final performance of Carnegie Hall’s 2022–2023 season, The MET Orchestra steps out of the opera house and into the concert hall with soprano Renée Fleming and tenor Russell Thomas. The program opens with a burst of energy as Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story return to the same stage on which they received their world premiere. More history-making follows with the world premiere of a new piece by MacArthur Fellow Matthew Aucoin, an exciting American composer whose opera Eurydice premiered to great acclaim at the Met Opera in 2021. Two time-tested classics perfectly suited to these musicians round out the program: Tchaikovsky’s Fantasy Overture from Romeo and Juliet and the dramatic final act of Verdi’s Otello.
