4 Classical Music Concerts to See in N.Y.C. This Weekend

Our guide to the city’s best classical music and opera happening this weekend and in the week ahead.

‘ADRIANA LECOUVREUR’ at the Metropolitan Opera (Dec. 31, 6 p.m.; through Jan. 26). Francesco Cilea’s showcase for leading vocal lights is the New Year’s Eve gala at the Met, and there is no more leading a lady than the soprano singing the title role: Anna Netrebko. She is joined by a superb cast, including Piotr Beczala as Maurizio, Anita Rachvelishvili as the Principessa, Ambrogio Maestri as Michonnet and Maurizio Muraro as Prince de Bouillon. Gianandrea Noseda conducts; the production is by David McVicar, a Met standby.

NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC at David Geffen Hall (Jan. 3, 7:30 p.m.; Jan. 4, 11 a.m.; Jan. 5, 8 p.m.). Replacing the young hotshot Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla, who would have made her Philharmonic debut with these concerts but remains on maternity leave, Paavo Jarvi conducts a program of Sibelius’s “Lemminkainen and the Maidens of the Island,” the second suite from Ravel’s “Daphnis et Chloé” and Dvorak’s Cello Concerto. Gautier Capuçon is the soloist.
