Opera in New York City This Week
The Metropolitan Opera is world-class and world famous, and it's among the comprehensive opera listings you can find on City Guide's calendar. In addition to the famous season of the Met Opera, full of huge opera stars, famous classics, and world premieres, you'll also find listings for the New York City Opera and operatic performances at places like Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.

Madama Butterfly - Metropolitan Opera
November 20, 2017 - New York

Anthony Minghella's stunning production of Puccini's heartbreaking opera, an instant Met classic since its 2006 premiere, returns with Hui He and Ermonela Jaho in the tragic title role of the trusting geisha. Roberto Aronica and Luis Chapa alternate as her callous American lover, Pinkerton, and Jader Bignamini and Marco Armiliato conduct.

The Exterminating Angel - Metropolitan Opera
November 21, 2017 - New York

Following the rapturous response to his last opera, The Tempest, the Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès's The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as "inventive and audacious … a major event," The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can't escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera.

Thaïs - Metropolitan Opera
November 22, 2017 - New York

Ailyn Pérez is the alluring courtesan and Gerald Finley is the holy man who tries to resist her powers of seduction in Massenet's tale of sensuality versus spirituality. Emmanuel Villaume conducts.

The Magic Flute - Metropolitan Opera
November 25, 2017 - New York

The Met's English-language family version of Mozart's enchanting masterpiece has become one of the city's essential holiday traditions. Evan Rogister conducts Julie Taymor's spellbinding production, with special holiday pricing and a 100-minute running time. Nathan Gunn reprises his much-loved portrayal of the bird-catcher Papageno.

Lloyd Cole - City Winery
November 25, 2017 - New York

Lloyd Cole, though he'd never be so gauche as to suggest it himself, has enjoyed something of a renaissance in 2013. He released his new 'career best' album 'Standards' in the summer. He also found himself with star billing on the UK's finest music TV show 'Later With Jools Holland'. He has been playing to sell-out houses across Europe ever since. Cole played his first electric shows in a decade in January 2014 and the 'never ending' solo acoustic tour resumed in March, crossing Europe, New Zealand and Australia. But still the album was not released in North America. At last this has been put right and 'Standards' will be released on Omnivore Recordings on September 30th. Cole expects to play a few select US shows in the fall with a fuller schedule in early 2015. Recorded in late 2012 to early 2013 in Los Angeles, New York and at his home in Easthampton, Massachusetts, 'Standards' is produced by Lloyd and mixed by maverick German producer Olaf Opal. All songs are by Lloyd Cole apart from 'California Earthquake', which was written by American folk artist John Hartford.
