Lincoln Center at Home

William Christie and Les Arts Florissants present the virtual premiere of the Orchestra’s performance of Haydn’s Symphony No. 87, the last of his six so-called Paris symphonies. One of the world’s most respected music ensembles, Les Arts Florissants was founded by William Christie in 1979 and has been hailed for its revitalization and performance of Baroque music, in particular French repertoire. The concert was recorded on October 27 at the Philharmonie de Paris and the 30-minute film includes a short introduction by William Christie and first violinist Hiro Kurosaki. It will be available for streaming for three months on Lincoln Center at Home, Lincoln Center’s Facebook Page, and on Les Arts Florissants’ website and social media platforms. Over three seasons starting in 2019, Christie and Les Arts Florissants intended to explore these inventive symphonies—composed when Haydn was at the height of his powers—along with concerti performed by some of today’s young virtuoso instrumental and vocal soloists. When the pandemic changed their planned October 2020 performances in Paris and in New York at Lincoln Center, the ensemble made a video recording of Symphony No. 87, which would have been performed as part of their Lincoln Center concert.

The Metropolitan Opera

During this extraordinary and difficult time, the Met hopes to brighten the lives of our audience members even while our stage is dark. Each day, a different encore presentation from the company’s Live in HD series is being made available for free streaming on the Met website, with each performance available for a period of 23 hours, from 7:30 p.m. EDT until 6:30 p.m. the following day. The schedule will include outstanding complete performances from the past 14 years of cinema transmissions, starring all of opera’s greatest singers. The streams are also available through the Met Opera on Demand apps for Apple, Amazon, and Roku devices and Samsung Smart TV. To access them without logging in, click “Browse and Preview” in the apps for connected TV, and “Explore the App” on tablets and mobile devices. 

Georgian mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili gives a dynamic performance as Bizet’s iconic gypsy, the woman who lives by her own rules. Aleksandrs Antonenko is Don José, the soldier who falls under her spell, and Ildar Abdrazakov plays Escamillo, the swaggering bullfighter who takes Carmen away from Don José—an action that seals Carmen’s tragic fate. Anita Hartig is Micaëla, and Pablo Heras-Casado conducts Richard Eyre’s hit production, set in 1930s Spain.
