The Metropolitan Opera will announce its season very shortly.
One of the highlights to leak our way is the Met debut of the Lithuanian soprano Asmik Grigorian, who took Salzburg by storm last summer as Salome in the Richard Strauss opera.
Grigorian, 37, will make her Met debut as Salome, followed by a second appearance as Madam Butterfly.
Also on the leak:
Joyce DiDonato will sing Handel’s Agrippina.
Eric Owens and Angel Blue will open the season as Porgy and Bess.
