Saturday December 10th - Kaija Saariaho's L'amour De Loin

Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho’s breakthrough opera was described by the New York Times as “transfixing…a lushly beautiful score.” Commissioned by the Salzburg Festival, where it was first seen in 2000, it will now finally have its Metropolitan Opera premiere in a dazzling new production by Robert Lepage. Eric Owens is the knight on a quest of love and Susanna Phillips is his lover on the other side of the sea. Conductor Susanna Mälkki makes her Met debut.

Saturday December 17th -

Richard Strauss's Salome

Richard Strauss's revolutionary score and scandalous Oscar Wilde-inspired drama took the world by storm at its premiere and continues to wow audiences today. Catherine Naglestad makes her Met debut in the tour-de-force role of Salome, part innocent and part sexual predator. Zeljko Lucic is her prophetic nemesis Jochannaan, John the Baptist. Gerhard Siegel is Herod, and Johannes Debus conducts the Metropolitan Orchestra and Chorus. (Pictured - a scene from Strauss's Salome. Photo by Marty Sohl, Metropolitan Opera)
