Each Friday afternoon during Met Opera season, Conductor Steven White will provide a preview of Saturday's matinee performance. 

Steven White made his debut with the Metropolitan Opera in 2010 and has since conducted a number of MET performances. He also continues a longstanding relationship with Opera Roanoke as Principal Guest Conductor and will conduct two performances of La boheme in Roanoke in April 2018.

This week, Conductor Steven White previews Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel, a combination of sophisticated harmonic language with a  folksy, childlike demeanor. 

MET Previews with Steven White are brought to you by Opera Roanoke, presenting the MET Live in HD in Whitman Theater, Virginia Western Community College.
