In his Met debut, Australian film, theatre, and opera director Simon Stone moves the action of Donizetti’s masterpiece from 18th-century Scotland to a present-day town in the American Rust Belt. The innovative staging features the Met’s rotating turntable in nearly constant motion, creating a cinematic fluidity between scenes. A screen above the stage features both live and pre-recorded video sequences that delve into the characters’ thoughts and emotions. Two of today’s most in-demand bel canto singers star in this electrifying production: soprano Nadine Sierra is the title heroine, and tenor Javier Camarena is her secret lover, Edgardo.

“The show is a feat of technical wizardry … Here, the singers, especially the two splendid leads, really seem to be singing for their lives … With [Ms. Sierra’s] crystalline soprano, bright, fluid coloratura and fearless ornamentation, she comes vividly alive … Mr. Camarena, a thrilling bel canto tenor, makes Edgardo sympathetic as well as amorous and hotheaded.” (The Wall Street Journal)
