This week’s complimentary opera performances from the Metropolitan Opera: three operas inspired by Shakespeare—including Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, starring Anna Netrebko and Roberto Alagna, two classic archival telecasts and Rossini’s madcap Il Barbiere di Siviglia and a dreamy performance of Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, starring Renée Fleming as the Marschallin.
