In a rare revival of Zandonai's passionate drama, based on an episode from Dante’s Inferno, Eva Maria-Westbroek sings the title role, with Marcello Giordani as her clandestine lover Paolo, and Mark Delavan as Paolo’s devious brother Gianciotto. Marco Armiliato conducts the compelling masterpiece’s renowned lush and romantic score.

What: The Met: Live in HD is a series of high definition opera transmissions of The Metropolitan Opera’s new season direct from Lincoln Center’s Metropolitan Opera House in New York City.
