By Francisco Salazar

Carlo Rizzi is set to conduct more Puccini and Verdi in upcoming Met seasons.

In an interview with the conductor, the New York Times revealed that the conductor will conduct more “La Bohème” and a revival of “Un Ballo in Maschera” in future seasons.

The news comes after Rizzi opened the Met season in a production of “Medea” and subsequently conducted productions of “Tosca” and “Don Carlo.”

OperaWire raved about the conductor noting, “the orchestra, under Rizzi, sounded as good as it has in ages.”

The conductor, who is finishing up a run of “Don Carlo,” will conduct a new album for Opera Rara where he is the Artistic Director. He is also set to conduct a production of Romeo et Juliette at the Paris Opera.
