Metropolitan Opera held a special benefit concert for Ukraine
The 90-minute program started with a rendition of Ukraine’s national anthem led by Ukrainian bass-baritone Vladyslav Buialskyi. The anthem was followed by “A Prayer for Ukraine,” a choral work by a Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov.
“Members of the Metropolitan Opera company stand in solidarity with the proud Ukrainian people, so strong in the face of such injustice, destruction and death,” Met general manager Peter Gelb said while speaking from the stage.
