La Cieca is assured by one of her most reliable mavens that a 2018-2019 production of Lohengrin at the Met looks like a definite “go.” The Claus Guth staging (seen previously in Milan and Paris) will be conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin and will feature an opening night cast including Anna Netrebko, Stuart Skelton and Evelyn Herlitzius.

As Peter Gelb announced just now on the Met broadcast, Anna Netrebko will sing Turandot at the Met in a “forthcoming season.”
La Cieca (pictured) asks, what are your eight (or even 10) can’t-miss opera events for the fall?
Cher public, you knew La Cieca would come through for you, didn’t you? So hurry past the jump and give a listen.
La Cieca will go out on limb and predict that the Met’s new music director will be Yannick Nezet-Seguin.
