Special: For Ukraine: A Concert of Remembrance and Hope, Friday, Feb 24 @ 7pm

The Metropolitan Opera

The Metropolitan Opera, in association with Lincoln Center and the Permanent Mission of Ukraine to the United Nations, announced a concert to mark the one-year anniversary of Russia’s brutal invasion of its neighbor.

Peter Gelb, the Met’s Maria Manetti Shrem General Manager, said, “Mozart’s Requiem is to remember the innocent victims of the war, and Beethoven’s Fifth is in anticipation of the victory to come.” Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin said, “I am proud to lead the great Met Orchestra and Chorus as we continue to use music, an instrument of peace and healing, to show support for the people of Ukraine as they continue their quest for peace and an end to this war.”
