Free Summer Events | Summer Recital Series | Summer HD Festival | Press Release
The Met’s annual concerts in New York City parks are one of the most beloved summer traditions in the city. This year, the company will present a six-performance series of recitals in the parks of all five boroughs. The Summer Recital Series kicks off with a concert at Central Park SummerStage on July 13, featuring Tony Award winner Paulo Szot, who will make his Met debut next season in William Kentridge’s new production of Shostakovich’s The Nose. Szot will be joined by rising opera singers Lisette Oropesa, a graduate of the Met’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, and Alek Shrader, a 2007 National Council Auditions winner, with accompaniment by pianist Vlad Iftinca. Actor/conductor Damon Gupton, a Juilliard graduate, will host several of the concerts.
All performances in the Summer Recital Series are free and no tickets are required, except for the concert at SummerStage. SummerStage tickets are free and will be available at the Met box office from Monday, July 6, to Friday, July 10, 10:00 am – 8:00 pm. Tickets, which are required, are general admission and made available on a first come/first served basis, with a maximum of four tickets per person.
