The Isle is Full of Noises…

Tonight I’ll be seeing the Met Opera premiere of Thomas AdèsThe Tempest!  I’m always curious about new opera, and though the Met hasn’t always had the most adventurous programming, I think they’ve been trying to branch out more lately.  Here are a few reviews of the Met production, and even a Met Opera dedicated minisite.

The premiere recording of The Tempest is actually up in full on Spotify, so if you don’t have Spotify yet, get on it!

And if you’re always looking out for the next big thing, it looks like Adès has a new opera in the works based on Buñuel‘s The Exterminating Angel!  Exciiiting…

Speaking of new opera, don’t miss your chance to see the full, world premiere performance of George Benjamin‘s Written on Skin; just a few days left, and it’s perfect for Halloween!  : )
