Metropolitan Opera to Open 2024-25 Season with ‘Aida’

By Francisco Salazar
Verdi’s “Aida” is set to open the Metropolitan Opera’s 2024-25 season.

The New York Observer unveiled the news in its review of the company’s current production by Sonja Frisell. The news source also added that Angel Blue will be singing the title role.

The new production is set to be directed by Michael Mayer, which was originally set to open the Met during the 2020-21 season but was postponed due to the pandemic. The Met reconfirmed the Mayer production earlier this season when it announced that Frisell’s production would be performed for the last time.

Mayer has previously directed “La Traviata” and “Rigoletto” at the Met. Blue is set to make her role debut as “Aida” at the Detriot Opera and will sing a summer run of the opera at the Royal Opera House. This season the soprano also returns to the Metropolitan Opera and the Santa Fe Opera.
