Ifigênia in Tauride

The Met’s New Iphigénie Opens in Seattle

October 15, 2007

Stephen Wadsworth’s stunning new production of Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride, which opens at the Met on November 27, had its premiere at Seattle Opera last Saturday, where it won a tumultuous ovation as well as critical praise. “Wadsworth is a master at extracting meaningful drama from every scene,” the Seattle Times said, going on to call the production, "a theatrical marvel." The Seattle Post-Intelligencer asked, “How could such a gem of the lyric theater escape notice for so long?” The production, the newspaper said, was "a rare treasure," and the work itself, "an opera of astonishing beauty." Here’s a photo from the production.

It’s the first time the Met and the Seattle Opera have joined forces for a co-production. The Met presents eight performances of Gluck’s work through the end of December with Susan Graham and Plácido Domingo in the leading roles and French conductor Louis Langrée making his company debut.
