Thursday, March 09, 2017 6:00 PM

Presented by Stuart Holt
Duration: 1 hour
Part of the Behind the Golden Curtain: Arts and Artisans at the Met series

In this series of conversations, the Guild’s Director of School Programs and Community Engagement, Stuart Holt, joins Metropolitan Opera musicians, artisans, and administrators for an inside look at the workings of one of the world’s major performing arts institutions.

While conductors and singers change from opera to opera throughout the season, the orchestra provides the constant musical framework that holds each performance together. In this special event, members of the Met Orchestra will provide an exclusive look at what goes on in the pit below the stage, discussing the challenges of rehearsing multiple productions at the same time and working with different conductors. They will also share personal stories of the career paths that brought them to the Met.
