Please note that by buying tickets you are accepting the house rules at Müpa Budapest, which also include the latest regulations and security rules. You can read further details and find key information on this page.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Historically significant: this production deserves that designation even in advance, since Grammy Award-winning jazz musician Terence Blanchard's work will be the first opera created by an African-American composer to ever be staged at the Met. This work to be conducted by the institution's music director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, is based on a memoir by the noted New York Times journalist Charles M. Blow and will be staged by two directors: James Robinson and Camille A. Brown, whose collective talent was made evident in their Porgy and Bess, the high point of the 2019/20 season.
The performance is not recommended for audiences under the age of 16.
The 'Metropolitan Opera Live in HD' transmissions have been made possible through the cooperation of our partner, Cikánek Management.
