Also on the program is Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder and the final scene from Strauss's Die Frau ohne Schatten, with both selections featuring all four artists. The complete program is below. The Hessisches Staatstheater, built in Baroque revival style in 1894, offers opera, ballet, theater and other performances; the Met's concert will be performed in the theater's striking grand foyer.

The Met Stars Live in Concert series features a lineup of some of opera's leading artists performing in striking locations across Europe and the United States.

The concerts are shot with multiple cameras, linked by satellite to a control room in New York City, where hosts Anthony Roth Costanzo (May 8), and Christine Goerke (May 22) are situated. Gary Halvorson, the award-winning director of the Met's Live in HD cinema transmissions, directs.

Tickets for each recital are $20 and can be purchased on the Met's website at metopera.org, and the performances will be available for on demand viewing for 14 days following the live event.
