Great Performances at The Met – Season Eight

GREAT PERFORMANCES at The Met – Season Eight

Great Performances at The Met returns to PBS for its eighth season in 2014, delighting audiences with 10 sumptuous productions featuring the world’s leading stars of opera. This blockbuster season highlights gems like  Shostakovich’s The Nose and Borodin’s Prince Igor and the enduring classics of the repertoire including Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte and Puccini’s La Boheme.

PBS is excited to highlight two of these operas with primetime broadcasts.  The season premiere is a brand new production of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin with the dazzling Anna Netrebko, and June brings the audience favorite, La Bohème.
