A NEW YEAR'S EVE WITH DONIZETTI

December 31, 2012 to February 2013 - The Metropolitan Opera - New York

How about starting the New Year with Gaetano Donizetti’s tale of ill-fated Mary Stuart Queen of Scots? That’s right: from New Year’s Eve to January 26 the MET presents Maria Stuarda, and in February we will be able to enjoy L'Elisir d'Amore, another masterpiece by the maestro. "Donizetti, when asked which of his own operas he thought the best, spontaneously replied, 'How can I say which? A father always has a preference for a crippled child, and I have so many.'" (Louis Engel: "From Mozart to Mario", 1886) (more)

This holiday entertainment is razor-sharp, stylishly-sung (in English!) and just two hours long. The charming and irresistible cast of young stars includes Isabel Leonard as the lovely Rosina, Alek Shrader as the Count who woos her, and Rodion Pogossov as the conspiring barber. (more)
