Musical, Program

In one extraordinary new work, lovers of Baroque opera have it all: the world's best singers, glorious music of the Baroque masters, and a story drawn from Shakespeare. In The Enchanted Island, the lovers from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream are shipwrecked on his other-worldly island of The Tempest. Inspired by the musical pastiches and masques of the 18th century, the work showcases arias and ensembles by Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, and others, and a new libretto by Jeremy Sams. Eminent conductor William Christie leads an all-star cast headed by David Daniels, Joyce DiDonato, and Plácido Domingo. This world-premiere production is directed and designed by Phelim McDermott and Julian Crouch.

Director: Phelim McDermott and Julian Crouch
Cast: David Daniels, Joyce DiDonato and Plácido Domingo
