The Met has been on a lucky streak lately with 'modern' - Nixon In China, Doctor Atomic, and
Satyagraha - but nothing tops this Thomas Ades opera based on Shakespeare's The Tempest. Everybody is fantastic in their roles, but the gold medal goes to Audrey Luna as a Lady Gaga-like Ariel you won't forget for as long as you live.
This is opera on the Hollywood/Broadway model, and it works. An amazing cast, superb Baroque music,
English libretto, excellent staging and production. Just incredible in every way.
And if you missed it, you missed the best opera of the year on HD Live. They've been pretty stellar
this season, but the cast and staging here is beyond brilliant. It shows us that Baroque opera has tremendous power when properly handled. The two countertenors will amaze you, and Rene is at her best.
