Lisette Oropesa, where have you been all my life? Of course, I've heard her before--she's appeared 100 times or so at the Met so one could hardly miss her--but never in a showpiece like the title role of Jules Massenet's MANON, opposite tenor Michael Fabiano's Chevalier des Grieux on the second night of the Met's new season.

by Richard Sasanow - Mar 27, 2019

There's lots to enjoy in the Met's revival of DIE WALKURE, the second part of Richard Wagner's great tetralogy, DER RING DES NIBELUNGEN, better known simply as Wagner's Ring Cycle, which had its first performance of the season on Monday night--all five hours of it!--under the pulsating control of Philippe Jordan and the Met orchestra in full throttle. The thrills started with the entrance of soprano Christine Goerke as Brunnhilde, tenor Stuart Skelton and soprano Eva Marie Westbroek as the incestuous Siegmund and Sieglinde, the clarion mezzo Jamie Barton as Fricka, goddess of marriage. For sheer pleasure and delight, however, there's nothing that beats the best-known section of the opera, ‚ÄúThe Ride of the Valkyries,‚ÄĚ which opens Act III.
