The Enchanted Island

Metropolitan Opera

The Met’s delightful Baroque fantasy returns after its critically acclaimed world-premiere run in 2011–12, bringing together the music of Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, Purcell, and other composers, set to a brilliant new English libretto inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. This time, the all-star cast is led by Susan Graham as Sycorax, with David Daniels, Danielle de Niese, and the great Plácido Domingo reprising their roles as Prospero, Ariel, and Neptune.

Approximate running time 3 hrs. 15 min.

Showtime: 7:30 PM
