We hear the rising Birmingham star will conduct the Met orchestra at Carnegie Hall on May 18, 2018, with Anita Rachvelishvili as soloist. She has yet to work in the Metropolitan Opera itself.

Also in the Met orch season at Carnegie Hall is a Pretty Yende concert on June 5, 2018, singing Mozart’s Exsultate, Jubilate and Mahler 4.



  • Ben says:

    She is going to debut with Philadelphia Orchestra in 2018 too! A must-attend!

  • RICHARD says:

    Didn’t she sing a few Carmens a year or so ago? I heard her as Amneris at Rome Opera 2 years ago. Terrific!

  • Petros Linardos says:

    Indeed, though that is not news.

    Carnegie Hall announced its 2017-18 season on January 25th. Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla was even featured with a photograph in the the NY Times on that day.
