Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.

 

 

Metropolitan Opera Clears Last Major Hurdle in Labor Talks

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/21/arts/music/metropolitan-opera-labor-talks.html

The Metropolitan Opera and the union representing its stage hands reached a contract deal early Wednesday morning, clearing the last major hurdle before the company could go ahead with its coming season of operas featuring jealous lovers, dying sopranos, and a fellow named Figaro — both before and after his marriage.

The Met’s management, whose demand for concessions sparked the worst labor strife at the opera house in decades, abandoned its threat to lock out workers just over a month before the opening of the opera season once the deal was struck. The agreement was reached at about 3:15 a.m., following a marathon bargaining session extended past a deadline of midnight Tuesday.

The Met said that the agreement prevented “a potential labor crisis at the nation’s largest performing arts organization.” It added that “preseason rehearsals and preparations for the 2014-15 season will continue without interruption.”
