We remember #FrancoZeffirelli, who died today at age 96. Franco was a master at giving the chorus scenarios to play out on stage, providing us the tools with which to populate the story and give each opera a sense of community. We remember his good humor and generous spirit, and love that we'll be able to revisit his vision in his productions of La Bohème and Turandot next season at @metopera. We send love to his family and friends. Franco is pictured here in 1981 with Teresa Stratas and Josè Carreras in La Bohème. Photos from La Bohème & Turandot from #MetOpera / #KenHoward

A throwback today to #AndreaChénier at @metopera -- wigs for days! The ladies of the chorus need time to get used to balancing these babies, but who doesn't love a good look?! #lewk #wig #costumes (clockwise starting from the left: @misschiggie #PatriciaSteiner @ktmangia #RosalieSullivan #AnnetteSpannLewis #ElaineYoung & @musiclovei from the 2014/15 season)
While we're off season at @metopera, we'd like to highlight some of our website features that you might have missed throughout the season. Here's one of the married couples in the Chorus, tenor #BrianAnderson and mezzo-soprano @christina.t.anderson.
So pick up your coffee, and read about how they balance family at home and life at the opera house! Link in Bio...⤴️ #flashbackfriday #operapowercouple #parentsoftheyear
