Based in NYC, the Met is the biggest classical music organization of North America that presents twenty-seven different operas every year. The company comprises of a large-scale symphony orchestra, a children’s choir, a ballet group and a chorus alongside several leading and supporting solo singers. Their singers’ roster features American as well as international artists, including those whose careers have in fact, been developed through the organization’s young artist program. Many singers perform with the company as guests, while others like Placido Domingo and Renee Fleming, have remained in close association, appearing several times each season. Met’s repertoire for operas consists of a variety of works, all the way back to Eighteenth Century’s Baroque, Nineteenth Century’s Bel canto, to the Twentieth Century’s minimalism. Many operas are performed in new productions every season, as is the case with this season’s Metropolitan Opera The Tempest show. Sometimes these are shared with or taken from other well known opera houses. Quite fantastically, the season of 2012-2013 has offered two-hundred and nine performances from twenty-eight operas.
After the Royal Opera’s success with Powder Her Face, the former commissioned the production of a new opera in the late nineties from Ades. As a result, a rather poetic edition of Jonestown Massacre of 1978 came to be created in collaboration with a librettist, but according to the composer, this version could not be set to music. The needed libretto finally came from a collaborative piece with Meredith Oakes. This new opera then took form of a co-production with Strasbourg-based Opera national du Rhin and Copenhagen Opera House. The Tempest made its premiere performance to the world in February 2004 at London’s Royal Opera House, fromm where it received significant critical acclaim. Further productions were made in Copenhagen and Strasbourg in 2005, following which the opera performed its US premier in July 2006, where it was staged by Santa Fe Opera. The next year, Covent Garden brought it back with the same production team featuring Thomas Ades as conductor alongside several original London cast members such as Stephen Richardson, Simon Keenlyside, Philip Langridge, Toby Spence, Ian Bostridge, and Cyndia Sieden. NYC’s The Met, later planned to debut their Metropolitan Opera The Tempest show in 2012/13 season, where it would be co-production alongside Vienna State Opera and the Quebec City Opera Festival.
Artistic Director Robert Lepage, has conceptualized the protagonist of Metropolitan Opera The Tempest show, Prospero as a man who wants to see himself become an Eighteenth Century opera impresario.
