Met music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Verdi’s beloved tragedy. Directed by Michael Mayer, this new production features a dazzling 18th-century setting that changes with the seasons.

One half-hour prior to curtain time, ticketholders are invited to a talk at the Bardavon led by Leslie Gerber, who is a music teacher at Marist’s Center for Lifetime Studies and author of all Hudson Valley Philharmonic playbill liner notes.
