The Met season opens with Music Director James Levine conducting a new production of Mozart's eternal masterpiece, directed by Richard Eyre, who sets the action in a 18th-century manor house in Seville during the 1930s. Dashing bass-baritone Ildar Abdrazakov, our Figaro, leads a dazzling cast, including Marlis Petersen as his bride, Susanna, Peter Mattei as the philandering Count, Amanda Majeski as the long-suffering Countess, and Isabel Leonard as the libidinous pageboy Cherubino. Designer Rob Howell (Carmen, Werther) utilizes a revolving set to keep the story bubbling along.
Two one act operas by the great American composer Carlisle Floyd, in brand new chamber arrangements. His very first opera, Slow Dusk is the story of an impoverished young woman whose dreams are challenged by religious and family obligations. Markheim is a man of privilege who has squandered his family fortune. Desperate for money, he is pursed by demons both real and imagined.
Can a murder on Christmas Eve be disguised? Based upon a thrilling story by Robert Louis Stevenson, the opera examines human nature pushed to its extreme.
A hauntingly beautiful and dramatically chilling work, Two Boys marked the "auspicious operatic debut" (London Independent) of composer Nico Muhly when the piece premiered at English National Opera in 2011. The opera explores identity and desire in the shadowy world of the Internet as a detective investigates the stabbing of one teenage boy by another—and discovers a tangled web of online intrigue. Loosely inspired by real events, director Bartlett Sher's production includes striking video projections by 59 Productions (Satyagraha, The Enchanted Island), while Muhly's score—featuring lyrical vocal writing and "shimmeringly ecstatic choruses" (London Telegraph) —"finds an exciting new musical language" (Wall Street Journal) to capture the mysterious realm of cyberspace.
