The Enchanted Island Summer Encore

Go behind the scenes with Met opera stars including interviews with cast, crew, and production teams who give an unprecedented look at what goes into the staging of an opera. An encore performance of Handel, Vivaldi Rameau’s The Enchanted Island will be shown in select cinemas on Wednesday, July 16, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. in all time zones. A contemporary take on the 18th-century genre of the pastiche, this delightful Baroque fantasy brings together some of the greatest arias and ensembles by Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, Purcell, and other composers, with a new English libretto by Jeremy Sams, inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The all-star cast is headed by David Daniels as Prospero, Joyce DiDonato as Sycorax, Danielle de Niese as Ariel, Luca Pisaroni as Caliban, and the legendary Plácido Domingo as Neptune. William Christie conducts this dazzling world-premiere production. This performance was originally transmitted live on Saturday, January 21, 2012.
