Long Description: 
This special Metropolitan Opera Encores program features 19 unforgettable arias and duets selected from the past 8 seasons of GREAT PERFORMANCES at The Met broadcasts, performed by today's greatest opera stars and talents. Hosted by soprano Deborah Voigt, the special covers a wide range of operatic ground, from heartbreak to hilarity, delivered by such artists as Natalie Dessay, Placido Domingo, Renee Fleming, Juan Diego Florez, Jonas Kaufmann, and Anna Netrebko, along with Voigt herself. These extraordinary moments, selected from more than 75 productions, were initially seen as part of the Met's global Live in HD movie-theater transmissions, later shared with PBS audiences as presentations of GREAT PERFORMANCES at the Met.
