PLEASE NOTE, THE CORRECT START TIME FOR THIS PERFORMANCE IS 4:55, NOT 5:55 AS PUBLISHED.  This is due to the US changing to Summer Time a week before us, which we failed to factor in when we originally put this show on sale.

Met resident conductor James Levine conducts a rare Met revival of Mozart’s Idomeneo, set in the aftermath of the Trojan War.
