The Met announced their upcoming season yesterday and you can read about it here. Of special note however are two roles at the Met which will also be seen here in San Diego.
First up is Piotr Beczala (he just sang Edgardo in the HD broadcast of Lucia and NAILED IT) who will be singing his first Rodolfo at the Met in La boheme. Piotr will sing it here, at San Diego Opera, a few weeks prior to his Met engagements. We have him opposite Anja Harteros. La boheme opens our 2010 season in January.
Lise Lindtrsom was also announced yesterday as The Met's Turandot. She'll be bringing this same role in the awesome David Hockney production to San Diego Opera to open the 2011 season.
