Join us for an encore performance from earlier this Fall featuring Thomas Ades’ acclaimed production of the Tempest. Maestro Ades conducts a cast that includes Audrey Luna as Ariel, Isabel Leonard as Miranda, and Alek Shrader as Ferdinand.
The Tempest belongs to that rare group of contemporary operas whose critical acclaim is matched by the ultimate practical test of stage-worthiness. In fact, The Tempest—still less than a decade old—can already boast an astonishing track record of five different productions.
