Encore Presentation - New Production
Approximate running time: 300 minutes
Francesca Zambello’s acclaimed 2003 production of Berlioz’s Trojan War epic returns to the Met for its first revival. Fabio Luisi conducts a cast led by Marcello Giordani in the central role of Aeneas, the hero who flees the ruins of Troy for a new set of challenges in the North African kingdom of Carthage. Deborah Voigt reprises the role of the cursed Trojan prophetess Cassandra, which she sang in the new production premiere, and Susan Graham makes her Met role debut as Dido, the noble but heartbroken Queen of Carthage.
This series is sponsored by Premier Medical Group; Jane W. Nuhn Charitable Trust; and Dr. Edwin A. Ulrich Charitable Trust.
The promtional sponsors are WMHT FM 89.1 Schenectady and WRHV FM 88.7 Poughkeepsie.
