The New York Times calls Thomas Adès’s masterpiece “one of the most inspired, audacious and personal operas to have come along in years.”

Robert Lepage’s “fantastical production…offers a superb cast, headed by the charismatic baritone Simon Keenlyside… Ariel is a dazzling creation and Audrey Luna conquers the role… Jasmine Catudal’s sets are alluring and inventive… (Composer and conductor Thomas) Adès drew a textured, glittering and suspenseful account of his opera from the great Met orchestra.”  Tickets for all of the Rialto Met performances are on sale now at the theatre.
