NEW YORK (AP) _ For the first time, the Three Tenors _ Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti _ will all appear at the Metropolitan Opera on the same night.
But they won’t be giving a trio concert. Each will star in one act of a different opera.
The Met announced the May 11 program on Wednesday and said the evening will be a benefit for the company’s pension fund. James Levine will conduct, with the Metropolitan Opera orchestra, chorus and ballet.
Ticket prices range from $100 to $1,000 for the performance and $12,750 to $2,500 for the performance and banquet afterwards with the artists at the opera house.
The evening will begin with Act 2 of Giordano’s ``Andrea Chenier,″ with Domingo in the title role. Act 4 of Bizet’s ``Carmen″ will follow, with Carreras as Don Jose. The program will conclude with Act 3 of Puccini’s ``Turandot,″ with Pavarotti as Calaf.
