Met Opera Iolants And Duke Bluebeards Castle
Intriguing double bill, consisting of an enchanting fairy tale (Iolanta) followed by an erotic psychological thriller (Duke Bluebeard’s Castle). On the heels of her triumphant Met performance in Eugene Onegin, soprano Anna Netrebko takes on another Tchaikovsky heroine, starring as the beautiful blind girl who experiences love for the first time in Iolanta. In the second opera, Nadja Michael is the unwitting victim of the diabolical Bluebeard, played by Mikhail Petrenko. Both operas are directed by Mariusz Trelinski, who was inspired by classic noir films of the 1940s. Valery Gergiev conducts both operas.
