The Warner Screens THE TEMPEST, 11/10
On Saturday, November 10 at 1pm, The Met: Live in HD series will continue at the Warner's Nancy Marine Studio Theatre with a Met premiere of Ades'sThe Tempest.
British composer Thomas Adès conducts the Met premiere of his contemporary masterpiece The Tempest, an English-language opera based on Shakespeare's final play. In the Met's fantastical new production by Robert Lepage, Simon Keenlyside leads the cast as the exiled magician Prospero, a role he created at the opera's 2004 world premiere. The opera also stars Isabel Leonard as Prospero's daughter, Miranda; Alek Shrader as the shipwrecked prince, Ferdinand; Alan Oke as the monstrous island native Caliban; and Audrey Luna in the stratospheric coloratura role of the air spirit Ariel. Soprano Deborah Voigt hosts the transmission and conducts backstage interviews with the stars
A pre broadcast lecture by Jeffrey Engel will begin at 11am for all interested ticket holders.
