Patrick Furrer [pictured] will conduct the final performance of Verdi’s Don Carlos on Saturday, replacing Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who has withdrawn due to illness. Furrer previously conducted the March 18 and 22 performances.

The Met’s new production of the original five-act French version of Don Carlos is directed by David McVicar and stars Matthew Polenzani in the title role, Sonya Yoncheva as Élisabeth de Valois, Jamie Barton as Eboli, Etienne Dupuis as Rodrigue, Eric Owens as Philippe II, and John Relyea as the Grand Inquisitor.

The performance will be transmitted live to cinemas around the world as part of the Met’s Live in HD series.
