One of the most highly praised operas of recent years, which had its premiere at the Salzburg Festival in 2000, Kaija Saariaho’s yearning medieval romance L’amour de loin, was brought to the Met in a dazzling new production by Robert Lepage, featuring glimmering ribbons of LED lights that extend across the length of the stage and over the orchestra pit.

Eric Owens stars as the knight on a quest of love, Susanna Phillips as his lover on the other side of the sea and Tamara Mumford as the Pilgrim.
