For more than 125 years, the Metropolitan Opera has been the artistic home of the greatest singers in the world. Now, the Forbes Center invites you to experience this once-in-a-lifetime evening - a live performance by the Met Opera stars of the future! Some of today’s leading artists got their first big break by winning the Met’s national auditions as members of the young artist program or by catching the attention of Met talent scouts. Stephanie Blythe, Renée Fleming, Susan Graham, Deborah Voigt, Thomas Hampson and Mariusz Kwiecien are just some of the major artists to have come through the Met ranks. This concert features four singers performing popular arias, duets and ensembles by opera’s greatest composers. Don’t miss the rare opportunity to see these remarkable young artists on the cusp of extraordinary careers!
