In one extraordinary new work, lovers of Baroque opera have it all: the world’s best singers, some of the finest music of the Baroque masters, and a story drawn from Shakespeare. In this highly-anticipated world premiere, the lovers from A Midsummer Night’s Dream are shipwrecked on the other-worldly island of The Tempest, providing the dramatic setting for a fantastic journey. Inspired by the musical pastiches and masques of the 18th century, The Enchanted Island showcases glorious arias and ensembles by Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, and others, and a new libretto by Jeremy Sams. Eminent conductor William Christie leads an all-star cast with David Daniels (Prospero) and Joyce DiDonato (Sycorax) as the formidable foes, Plácido Domingo as Neptune, Danielle de Niese as Ariel, and Luca Pisaroni as Caliban. Lisette Oropesa and Anthony Roth Costanzo play Miranda and Ferdinand. The dazzling production is directed and designed by Phelim McDermott and Julian Crouch (Satyagraha and the Met’s 125 anniversary gala).
