Tenor Javier Camarena and soprano Pretty Yende team up for a feast of bel canto vocal fireworks—including the show-stopping tenor aria “Ah! Mes amis,” with its nine high Cs. Alessandro Corbelli and Maurizio Muraro trade off as the comic Sergeant Sulpice, with mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe as the outlandish Marquise of Berkenfield. Enrique Mazzola conducts.
Announced October 2018: Kathleen Turner will join the cast of Donizetti’s comedy La Fille du Régiment at the Metropolitan Opera February 7–March 2, in the non-singing role of the Duchess of Krakenthorp. Turner joins a list of distinguished actresses who have played the Duchess of Krakenthorp at the Met: Jane White (1983), Bea Arthur (1994), and Marian Seldes (2008). More recently, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg took on the role with Washington National Opera.
Please join us for a complimentary pre-opera lecture in The Paramount Theater Auditorium at 12:00PM. The lecture for La Fille du Régiment will be conducted by Mary Ann Archer, flutist, formerly with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra for 26 years and author of a book on meditation entitled Shared Imagination.
