Marco Armiliato has been honored by the Metropolitan Opera Club.

The Met Orchestra took to social media and said, “The Metropolitan Opera Club was thrilled to add another star to the honorary Metropolitan Opera Club member firmament! Maestro Marco Armiliato joined us for a fascinating conversation with Honorary Member F. Paul Driscoll. In addition to receiving recognition of his honorary membership, Maestro Armiliato told us about his storied conducting career in all the major opera houses of the world. At the Met Opera alone, he has conducted over 450 performances since his debut in 1998, second only to former music director James Levine in the 21st Century. Bravo Maestro and thank you to our many friends from the Met Opera Chorus and Met Orchestra for joining us for the special evening as well!”
