About This Show

In this new production by acclaimed theater artist Mary Zimmerman and conducted by Maestro James Levine, Donizetti’s famous tragic heroine is portrayed by one of her greatest recent interpreters: Natalie Dessay. She brings vocal virtuosity and dramatic commitment to the role of the young woman who is cornered by forces that break her heart and mind. Marcello Giordani and Giuseppe Filianoti share the role of her lover Edgardo, while Mariusz Kwiecien is her scheming brother Enrico, and John Relyea is the compassionate Raimondo.
