The Metropolitan Opera is pleased to offer you the opportunity to participate in Summer Encores – a series of six past Live in HD performances at bargain prices.
A contemporary take on the 18th-century genre of the pastiche, this delightful Baroque fantasy brings together some of the greatest arias and ensembles by Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, Purcell, and other composers, with a new English libretto by Jeremy Sams, inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The all-star cast is headed by David Daniels as Prospero, Joyce DiDonato as Sycorax, Danielle de Niese as Ariel, Luca Pisaroni as Caliban, and the legendary Plácido Domingo as Neptune. William Christie conducts this dazzling world-premiere production.
Lower ticket prices in the summer! Tickets (available in advance): $15 adults, $13 seniors, $11 students, with $2 off for Lincoln Theatre Members. A great time for audiences of all ages and first-time opera-goers to attend.
