Photo Flash: First Look at Elina Garanca and More in LA CLEMENZA DI TITO, 'Great Performances at the Met'

Elina Garanca, star of the Great Performances at the Met broadcasts of Carmen and La Cenerentola, appears in the trouser role of Sesto in the Met's rare revival of Mozart's opera of ancient Rome, La Clemenza di Tito. Check out the photos below!

Mezzo-soprano Susan Graham hosts the telecast and conducts backstage interviews with the stars, Sunday, April 14 at 12 noon on PBS (check local listings). In New York, THIRTEEN will premiere the opera on Thursday, April 11 at 8:30 p.m., with an encore showing Sunday, April 14 at 12:30 p.m.

Italian tenor Giuseppe Filianoti takes on the title role of the Roman emperor Titus, the target of an assassination scheme by the vengeful Vitellia (Barbara Frittoli). American mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey and English soprano Lucy Crowe co-star as the young lovers Annio and Servilia in this performance of Jean-Pierre Ponnelle's stylized 1984 production, which is conducted by Baroque specialist Harry Bicket.

For the Met, Barbara Willis Sweete directs the telecast. Jay David Saks is Music Producer, Mia Bongiovanni and Elena Park are Supervising Producers, and Louisa Briccetti and Victoria Warivonchik are Producers. Peter Gelb is Executive Producer. For Great Performances, Bill O'Donnell is Series Producer; David Horn is Executive Producer.
