Bryn Terfel in Wales
with Malcolm Martineau, piano
Live Performance: 
December 13 2020, 2:00 am (HKT)

Legendary bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel performs a holiday program live from Brecon Cathedral in his native Wales. Joining Terfel are several special musical guests: harpist Hannah Stone, pianist Jeff Howard, the Welsh traditional folk group Calan, and two rising young Welsh singers—soprano Natalya Romaniw and tenor Trystan Llyr Griffiths. Though Terfel has a long history of magnificent performances at the Met, circumstances have conspired to prevent him from taking our stage since 2012, making this an unmissable event.

What the New York Times Critics are Saying

New York Times critics and writers zero in on the highlights of The MET Opera's 2020 season.

Turandot
"In this season its leading lady is the draw. With Christine Goerke in the title role, and Mr. Nézét-Séguin takes the podium."
- Corinna da Fonseca-Wolheim

Akhnaten
Phelim McDermott’s returns to the MET with “Akhnaten”, starring the countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo and conducted, in her Met debut, by Karen Kamensek."
- Joshua Barone

Wozzeck
"William Kentridge’s Berg staging struck me as his finest opera production yet. It has his antic visual trademarks — jittery action and flickering projections reminiscent of the grotesque battlefield prints of Otto Dix and George Grosz — but was notably humane and emotionally true."
- Zachary Woolfe

Porgy and Bess
"James Robinson's staging has a superb cast and David Robertson conducting... I can't wait to see it properly."  
- Anthony Tommasini

Agrippina
"David McVicar’s well-traveled production dates back to Brussels in 2000, but it is also one of this house standby’s more interventionist stagings"
- David Allen

Quote from
The New York Times

Director Phelim McDermott tackles another one of Philip Glass’s masterpieces, following the now-legendary Met staging of Satyagraha. Star countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo is the title pharaoh, the revolutionary ruler who transformed ancient Egypt, with the striking mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges in her Met debut as his wife, Nefertiti. To match the opera’s hypnotic, ritualistic music, McDermott has created an arresting vision that includes a virtuosic company of acrobats and jugglers. Karen Kamensek conducts in her Met debut.

Please note that Akhnaten will be performed without subtitles, except for scene titles and select texts.  Director Phelim McDermott’s goal is to create a theatrical experience that is beyond words, plot information and conventional storytelling.  He wants the audience for Akhnaten to be overtaken by the hypnotic nature of the music, the visual imagery and the pageant-like nature of the piece.  The scribe sets the scene in English, and the rest of the text (including ancient Egyptian and Hebrew) which does not have subtitles is highly repetitive, often fragmented and ritualistic rather than descriptive.

先前菲利·麥達莫(Phelim McDermott)在大都會歌劇院帶來《真理堅定》(Satyagraha)的傳奇演出,這次再度由他執導菲利普·葛拉斯的歌劇傑作。由假聲男高音巨星安東尼·羅斯·科斯坦佐(Anthony Roth Costanzo)領銜主演古埃及厲行改革的阿肯那頓法老,技驚四座的女中音喬奈·布里奇斯(J’Nai Bridges)則初次在大都會歌劇院演出,飾演娜芙蒂蒂皇后。麥達莫大顯藝術異采,運用特技演員創造令人目不轉睛的畫面,與本劇心馳神遊的儀式音樂相得益彰。這也是凱倫·凱文賽克(Karen Kamensek)首度在大都會歌劇院登台指揮。

《阿肯那頓》將提供有限英文字幕。製作團隊希望以靈幻的音樂及舞台,帶給觀眾擬幻似真,越過文字界限的演出。

There is juggling, and more juggling...

After wowing audiences with his astounding production of Lulu in 2015, South African artist William Kentridge now focuses his extraordinary visual imagination on Berg’s other operatic masterpiece, set in an apocalyptic pre–World War I environment. Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin is on the podium for this important event, with baritone Peter Mattei making his highly anticipated role debut as the title character. Soprano Elza van den Heever is Wozzeck’s unfaithful mate, and the commanding cast also includes tenor Christopher Ventris as the Drum-Major, bass-baritone Christian Van Horn as the Doctor, and tenor Gerhard Siegel as the Captain.

南非藝術家威廉·肯特里奇(William Kentridge)於2015年製作《露露》(Lulu),結果一鳴驚人,讓所有觀眾依舊難忘。如今他以超凡視覺想像詮釋貝爾格另一齣歌劇鉅作,故事時代背景設定在大難將臨的第一次世界大戰前夕。大都會歌劇院音樂總監雅尼克·涅採-西格英(Yannick Nézet-Séguin)親自登台坐鎮這場重要演出,男中音彼得·馬太(Peter Mattei)首次飾演本劇主角,實為眾望所歸。女高音愛兒薩·范·德·悉荷(Elza van den Heever)則飾演伍采克感情不忠的伴侶。這次演員陣容包括男高音克里斯多福·文特里斯(Christopher Ventris)飾演鼓樂隊隊長、低男中音克里斯蒂安·范·霍恩(Christian Van Horn)飾演醫生、男高音格哈德·西格爾(Gerhard Siegel)飾演隊長。

One of America’s favorite operas returns to the Met for the first time in nearly 30 years. James Robinson’s stylish production transports audiences to Catfish Row on the Charleston waterfront, vibrant with the music, dancing, emotion, and heartbreak of its inhabitants. “If you’re going to stage Gershwin’s opera, this is how,” raved the Guardian when the new production premiered in London in 2018. David Robertson conducts a dynamic cast, featuring the sympathetic duo of Eric Owens and Angel Blue in the title roles and an all-star ensemble that includes Golda Schultz, Latonia Moore, Denyce Graves, Frederick Ballentine, Alfred Walker, and Ryan Speedo Green.

暌違將近30年後,美國超級熱門歌劇再次重返大都會歌劇院。詹姆斯·羅賓森(James Robinson)發揮獨特製作風格,帶領觀眾前往查爾斯頓濱水的鯰魚街,感受鮮明的樂音、舞蹈與動感,體會當地居民的傷痛。這部新劇作於2018年在倫敦首演,《衛報》評論讚譽道:「若要演出蓋希文的歌劇,這就是典範」。由大衛·羅伯森(David Robertson)負責統理指揮精采的演員陣容,埃里克·歐文斯(Eric Owens)與安潔兒·布魯(Angel Blue)同台飆戲,帶來扣人心弦的演出。本次豪華陣容還包括戈爾達·舒爾茲(Golda Schultz)、拉東婭·摩爾(Latonia Moore)、丹妮絲·葛瑞芙絲(Denyce Graves)、費德里克·巴倫提尼(Frederick Ballentine)、阿爾弗雷·沃克(Alfred Walker)以及萊恩.斯畢多.葛林(Ryan Speedo Green)。

Handel’s tale of intrigue and impropriety in ancient Rome receives its first Met performances, with star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina and Harry Bicket conducting. Sir David McVicar’s production ingeniously reframes the action of this black comedy about the abuse of power to “the present,” where it should loudly resonate. The all-star cast features mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey as Agrippina’s son and future emperor Nerone, soprano Brenda Rae as the seductive Poppea, countertenor Iestyn Davies as the ambitious officer Ottone, and bass Matthew Rose as the weary emperor Claudius.

韓德爾筆下的古羅馬陰謀奪權大劇首度登上大都會歌劇院,著名女中音喬伊斯·迪多納托(Joyce DiDonato)飾演控制慾強烈、貪慕權位的阿格里皮娜,並由哈里·比凱(Harry Bicket)擔任指揮。大衛·麥克維卡(Sir David McVicar)的製作巧思讓這部黑色喜劇脫胎換骨,劇情呼應「現今社會」濫權亂象,想必能讓觀眾心有戚戚焉。演員陣容星光熠熠,由女中音凱特·林齊(Kate Lindsey)飾演阿格里皮娜之子與儲君尼祿、女高音布蘭達·蕾(Brenda Rae)飾演美豔誘人的波佩亞、假聲男高音伊絲汀·戴維斯(Iestyn Davies)飾演野心將領奧托內、男低音馬修·羅斯(Matthew Rose)飾演衰老的克勞狄烏斯皇帝。

François Girard, whose revelatory 2013 take on Parsifal set the recent Met standard for Wagner stagings, now unveils a spellbinding new vision of the composer's tale of a cursed sea captain doomed to sail the open ocean for eternity. With sweeping sets by John Macfarlane, Girard’s new production turns the Met stage into a rich, layered tableau reminiscent of a vast oil painting. Valery Gergiev conducts a brilliant cast led by bass-baritone Evgeny Nikitin as the Dutchman, with German soprano Anja Kampe making her anticipated Met debut as the devoted Senta, whose selfless love is what the Dutchman seeks. Bass Franz-Josef Selig is her father, Daland, and tenor Sergey Skorokhodov is her deserted former lover, Erik.

由法蘭西斯·吉哈德(François Girard)製作的全新歌劇,吉哈德在2013年以豐沛想像演繹《帕西法爾》(Parsifal),奠定近年大都會歌劇院演出華格納劇作的超高標準。約翰·麥克法蘭(John Macfarlane)佈景讓人嘆為觀止,這部全新製作將大都會歌劇院舞台化為層層堆疊的豐富畫布,讓人不禁聯想到巨幅的油畫畫作。由洛維奇·格吉耶夫(Valery Gergiev)負責指揮,艾夫根尼‧尼基京(Evgeny Nikitin)飾演荷蘭人,才華洋溢的德國女高音安雅·坎培(Anja Kampe)首次在大都會歌劇院飾演深情的珊塔,她那無私的愛正是荷蘭人的心之所向。男低音佛蘭兹-約瑟夫·塞利格(Franz-Josef Selig)扮演珊塔之父達朗德、男高音謝爾蓋·斯科羅克多夫(Sergey Skorokhodov)則飾演被她所拋棄的舊情人艾瑞克。

Soprano Anna Netrebko, whom the New York Times hailed as “magnificent” when she made her role debut as Tosca in 2018, returns as Puccini’s explosive diva. Tenor Brian Jagde is the idealistic painter Cavaradossi, and baritone Michael Volle completes the opera’s fatal love triangle as the sinister Scarpia. Bertrand de Billy conducts Sir David McVicar’s stunning production.

女高音安娜·涅特列布科(Anna Netrebko)2018年首度飾演托絲卡,《紐約時報》盛讚其表現「華麗無比」,這次她再度領銜主演普契尼筆下的名伶,在觀眾千呼萬喚下重返舞台。男高音布萊恩·賈格德(Brian Jagde)飾演追求理想的畫家瓦拉多希、男��音喬治·加尼德茲(George Gagnidze)飾演陰險的史卡匹亞,三個角色的愛恨糾葛形成致命三角。貝特朗·德·比利(Bertrand de Billy)負責指揮大衛·麥克維卡(Sir David McVicar)所製作的這部驚世製作。

Soprano Diana Damrau, following her triumph as Violetta in last season’s new production of Verdi’s La Traviata, stars as the martyred Mary, Queen of Scots, in Donizetti’s bel canto showcase. Star mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton is her imperious rival Queen Elizabeth I, and the silken-voiced tenor Stephen Costello is the noble Earl of Leicester. Maurizio Benini conducts Sir David McVicar’s handsome production.

女高音黛安娜·達姆嬈(Diana Damrau)上一季在威爾第的《茶花女》飾演薇奧麗塔,佳評如潮。本次她領銜主演蘇格蘭的殉道者瑪麗女王,獻上董尼采第的美聲唱法。知名女中音傑米·巴頓(Jamie Barton)飾演傲慢政敵伊莉莎白女王一世、歌聲動聽的男高音斯蒂芬·科斯特洛(Stephen Costello)飾演萊斯特伯爵,並由毛里齊奧·貝尼尼(Maurizio Benini)負責指揮演奏大衛·麥克維卡(Sir David McVicar)製作的這部精采製作。


Bryn Terfel in Wales
with Malcolm Martineau, piano
Live Performance: 
December 13 2020, 2:00 am (HKT)

Legendary bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel performs a holiday program live from Brecon Cathedral in his native Wales. Joining Terfel are several special musical guests: harpist Hannah Stone, pianist Jeff Howard, the Welsh traditional folk group Calan, and two rising young Welsh singers—soprano Natalya Romaniw and tenor Trystan Llyr Griffiths. Though Terfel has a long history of magnificent performances at the Met, circumstances have conspired to prevent him from taking our stage since 2012, making this an unmissable event.

What the New York Times Critics are Saying

New York Times critics and writers zero in on the highlights of The MET Opera's 2020 season.

Turandot
"In this season its leading lady is the draw. With Christine Goerke in the title role, and Mr. Nézét-Séguin takes the podium."
- Corinna da Fonseca-Wolheim

Akhnaten
Phelim McDermott’s returns to the MET with “Akhnaten”, starring the countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo and conducted, in her Met debut, by Karen Kamensek."
- Joshua Barone

Wozzeck
"William Kentridge’s Berg staging struck me as his finest opera production yet. It has his antic visual trademarks — jittery action and flickering projections reminiscent of the grotesque battlefield prints of Otto Dix and George Grosz — but was notably humane and emotionally true."
- Zachary Woolfe

Porgy and Bess
"James Robinson's staging has a superb cast and David Robertson conducting... I can't wait to see it properly."  
- Anthony Tommasini

Agrippina
"David McVicar’s well-traveled production dates back to Brussels in 2000, but it is also one of this house standby’s more interventionist stagings"
- David Allen
