The Metropolitan Opera’s Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series The Met: Live in HD continues for its 11th season in 2016-17, featuring 10 live transmissions from New York City. Tickets for broadcasts at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., are on sale for each individual show and for the entire season.

The Met: Live in HD will begin its season Oct. 8 with the series’ 100th transmission, a new production of Wagner’s “Tristan und Isolde” conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, directed by Mariusz Treliński and starring Nina Stemme —the world’s preeminent Isolde.

This season will feature the series’ first broadcasts of Kaija Saariaho’s 2000 opera “L’Amour de Loin,” which has its Met premiere this season; Verdi’s early Biblical epic “Nabucco,” starring Plácido Domingo in the title role; and Mozart’s “Idomeneo,” conducted by Met Music Director Emeritus James Levine (next season, Yannick Nézet-Séguin comes on as the company’s Music Director Designate). In addition to the new productions of “Tristan und Isolde” and “L’Amour de Loin,” Live in HD audiences will see the Met’s new stagings of Gounod’s “Roméo et Juliette,” starring Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo; Dvořák’s “Rusalka,” with Kristine Opolais in her first Met performances of her international breakthrough role; and Strauss’s “Der Rosenkavalier,” with Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian.

The season also will feature Mozart’s “Don Giovanni,” with Simon Keenlyside in his first Met performances of the rakish title character; Verdi’s “La Traviata,” with Sonya Yoncheva as the doomed Violetta; and Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin,” with Anna Netrebko repeating one of her great triumphs of recent seasons opposite the Onegin of Dmitri Hvorostovsky.

The 2016-17 season also celebrates the company’s 50th anniversary at Lincoln Center.
