About

Witness history happening on medici.tv! Join the fiery Gustavo Dudamel at Paris's exquisite Palais Garnier for his inaugural concert as Music Director of the Paris Opera, kicking off a six-year tenure that promises great things to come. Beginning with scenes from Bizet’s legendary Carmen, this feast of a program takes you from Verdi’s Falstaff to John Adams’s Doctor Atomic, from Wagner’s Lohengrin to Britten’s Peter Grimes, and through works by Strauss, Falla, and Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov. Joining the maestro is a marquee lineup of opera stars like sopranos Jacquelyn Wagner and Sabine Devieilhe, tenor Matthew Polenzani, and bass-baritone Gerald Finley—a star-studded cast to match the momentous occasion!
