Metropolitan Opera Opening Night

September 21, 2015 │ New York

Deutsche Bank is proud to sponsor the Metropolitan Opera’s Opening Night Gala for the 2015-16 season.

This is Deutsche Bank's fifteenth year sponsoring the event, which will feature a new staging of Verdi’s masterpiece Otello, conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin in his first Met opening night. Bartlett Sher’s new production will star Aleksandrs Antonenko in his first Met performances of the tormented Moor of Venice, with Sonya Yoncheva in her role debut as his wife, Desdemona, and Željko Lučić as Otello’s sinister rival, Iago. The staging, also featuring Dimitri Pittas as Cassio and Günther Groissböck as Lodovico, will mark the Met debut of set designer Es Devlin, whose previous designs include the 2014 revival of Machinal on Broadway and numerous opera productions for Covent Garden, La Scala, and other leading companies.

The performance will be transmitted live to multiple screens in Times Square and on Lincoln Center’s Josie Robertson Plaza, and broadcast live on Metropolitan Opera Radio on SIRIUS XM.
