The Metropolitan Opera broadcast season begins again on December 3, 2016, with Puccini’s Manon Lescaut starring Anna Netrebko and Marcelo Álvarez, conducted by Marco Armiliato. The opera begins at 12:30 pm, with our pre-Met preview at about 12:15 pm — the first of the 2016-2017 season of live Metropolitan Opera Saturday radio broadcasts. This year the broadcast season (which is always shorter than the Met’s full performance season) runs from December 3 to May 13, with 24 performances.
