A Met Premiere, broadcast live from New York!

Tony Award–winning composer Jeanine Tesori’s powerful new opera Grounded premieres at the
Metropolitan Opera, wrestling with often-overlooked issues created by 21st-century warmaking:
the ethical conflicts created by the use of modern military technology and the psychological and
emotional toll supposedly safe remote technology takes on our servicepersons. Canadian mezzosoprano
Emily D’Angelo stars as the hot-shot fighter pilot whose unplanned pregnancy takes her
out of the cockpit and lands her in Las Vegas, operating a Reaper drone halfway around the
world. American tenor Ben Bliss costars as the Wyoming rancher Eric in a production by
Michael Mayer that brings this story to life in a high-tech staging which presents a variety of
perspectives on the action. Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin takes the podium to
conduct Tesori’s kaleidoscopic opera, which will be transmitted live from the Met stage to
cinemas on October 19.

Approx. running time: 2hrs 44min, including one intermission
