The Met will get a new production of Manon Lescaut from Richard Eyre. The staging will be a co-production with the Baden Baden Festival that will premiere next year with Eva-Maria Westbroek. Stefan Herheim also announced that his new production of Der Meistersingers will be a co production the New York and Paris.
Casting has not been announced for either production but hopefully Lescaut will star Anna netrebko and Jonas Kaufmann. For Meistersingers most likely Bryn Terfel and Johan Botha will be in the cast
