Stravinsky's dark comedy returns to the Met Opera stage for the first time in seven years for four performances only. Get The Rake's Progress tickets now.

After an acclaimed company debut conducting the Met premiere of Kaija Saariaho’s L’Amour de Loin in 2016, Susanna Mälkki returns to lead Stravinsky’s neoclassical dark comedy. Young star tenor Ben Bliss is the cad Tom Rakewell, alongside soprano Golda Schultz as the virtuous Anne Trulove and bass-baritone Christian Van Horn as the diabolical Nick Shadow. Jonathan Miller’s surreal production, last seen on the Met stage in 2015, also features mezzo-soprano Alice Coote as Baba the Turk and bass James Creswell as Anne’s father, Trulove.
