TEMPEST, THE

"This is the Met at its adventurous best."

Wall Street Journal

British composer Thomas Adès conducts the Met premiere of his contemporary masterpiece The Tempest, an English-language opera based on Shakespeare’s final play. In the Met’s fantastical new production by Robert Lepage, Simon Keenlyside leads the cast as the exiled magician Prospero, a role he created at the opera’s 2004 world premiere. The opera also stars Isabel Leonard as Prospero’s daughter, Miranda; Alek Shrader as the shipwrecked prince, Ferdinand; Alan Oke as the monstrous island native Caliban; and Audrey Luna in the stratospheric coloratura role of the air spirit Ariel.
