War and Peace
Approximate running time 4 hrs. 15 min.
Prokofiev’s adaptation of Tolstoy’s novel captures its sweeping worldview as well as its insights into individuals. The resources required for this opera (65 solo roles, a depiction of the largest land battle in European history, and the magnificence of Imperial balls in Czarist Russia) makes this one of the biggest productions in Met history. For the first five performances, dynamic Russian maestro Valery Gergiev marshals the musical forces of a cast that includes many leading Russian singers. The three remaining performances are conducted by Gianandrea Noseda.
