MET OPERA: IDOMENEO
Sat, 25th March, 2017 @ 16:55pm - 21:15pm£8 - £18
Mozart’s first operatic masterpiece returns to the Met in the classic Jean-Pierre Ponnelle production, conducted by Music Director Emeritus James Levine. The superb ensemble includes Matthew Polenzani as the king torn by a rash vow; mezzo-soprano Alice Coote in the trouser role of his noble son Idamante; soprano Nadine Sierra as Ilia; and soprano Elza van den Heever as the volatile Elettra, who loves Idamante to the bounds of madness.
“Matthew Polenzani emerges UTTERLY COMPELLING in the royal title role, his tenor equally persuasive in heroic outburst and introspective reflection …Alice Coote exudes NOBLE PASSION.”—financial times
“A richly rewarding night of opera … A first-rate cast … A MAGNIFICENT MUSICAL TREAT.”
