The Metropolitan Opera: The Tempest
British composer Thomas Adès makes his
company debut conducting the Met premiere
of his opera The Tempest, which has been
widely praised as a modern masterpiece.
Robert Lepage’s innovative production
recreates the interior of the La Scala opera
house as the magical island venue for the
otherworldly arts of Prospero, the exiled Duke
of Milan. Simon Keenlyside sings Prospero, as
he did to critical acclaim in the opera’s world
premiere at the Royal Opera, Covent Garden.
