MEDEA

Sondra Radvanovsky stars in the tour-de-force title role in an acclaimed production by David McVicar

 

Following triumphant performances at the Met as some of the repertory’s most dramatic heroines, soprano Sondra Radvanovsky sings Medea for the first time, taking on the tour-de-force role made famous by Maria Callas. Joining Radvanovsky is tenor Matthew Polenzani as Medea’s husband, Giasone (Jason the Argonaut); soprano Janai Brugger as the rival for his love, Glauce; bass Michele Pertusi as Glauce’s father, Creonte, the King of Corinth; and mezzo-soprano Ekaterina Gubanova as Neris, Medea’s confidante. The production is directed by David McVicar, who also designed the sets, with Carlo Rizzi on the podium.

 

“Radvanovsky delivers a tireless performance … She began with a deceptively lovely account of Medea’s sympathetic initial aria and went on to show her mastery of vocal declamation.” - Financial Times
