Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin will lead a program featuring Ukrainian bass-baritone Vladyslav Buialskyi and the Met Chorus in the Ukrainian national anthem and “A Prayer for the Ukraine,” a choral work by Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov.

The 70-minute program will also include Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings, Nabucco’s “Va, pensiero” by Verdi, soprano Lise Davidsen in Vier letzte Lieder (Four Last Songs) by Richard Strauss and the finale of the Ninth Symphony by Beethoven with Davidsen, mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton, tenor Piotr Beczała and bass-baritone Ryan Speedo Green.
