Overview

After 16 months of closure, the Met has had to make some changes to the start of the 2021–22 season to accommodate the necessary technical preparations. As a result, the revival of Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride, originally scheduled to run from September 29 to October 15, has been canceled.

Following her scene-stealing performance in Handel’s Agrippina, mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey takes on the formidable title role in Gluck’s stirring adaptation of a classic Greek myth. Nathalie Stutzmann makes her company debut on the podium, leading a compelling cast that also features baritone Étienne Dupuis as Iphigénie’s long-lost brother, Oreste, and tenor Ben Bliss as his companion Pylade. Stephen Wadsworth’s staging transports audiences to a world vibrant with mysterious ritual and mesmerizing dance.
