About The Tempest
Composer Thomas Adès conducts the Metropolitan Opera premiere of his 2004 work, which has been widely praised as a modern masterpiece. Director Robert Lepage recreates the interior of 18th-century La Scala, including the hidden workings underneath the stage, where Prospero, the banished Duke of Milan, practices his otherworldly arts. The magnetic baritone Simon Keenlyside stars as Prospero, a role he has sung to great acclaim in London.
Production a gift of Mrs. Bert S. Turner and Robert L. Turner.
A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera and L’Opéra de Québec. In collaboration with Ex Machina.
Approximate running time: 2 hrs. 31 min. In English, with English subtitles.
