The MET Announces Documentary About Music Director

Filmmaker Susan Froemke’s documentary follows the life of Yannick Nézet-Séguin

Entitled "Yannick: An Artist’s Journey," the documentary will precede the Met’s summer encore screenings of "Live in HD" presentations in US cinemas beginning Wednesday, July 14.

The film follows the life of the Met’s Jeanette Lerman-Neubauer Music Director, Nézet-Séguin. From his youth to being named the Met’s third music director in history, the documentary features home videos from Nézet-Séguin’s family while he was growing up in Montreal.

In a press release, the Met stated, “In addition to interviews with family, mentors, colleagues, and the maestro himself, the film also shows revealing behind-the-scenes footage of Nézet-Séguin in rehearsals, highlighting his musical homes in Montreal, Philadelphia, and New York.”

The film is made possible thanks to the generosity of Louise, Sophie, and André Desmarais, in memory of their mother, and Canadian supporter of the arts, Jacqueline Desmarais.
