Enrique Mazzola returns to the Metropolitan Opera for performances of the opera comique La Fille du Regiment. This production by Laurent Pelly places the action during the First World War, with Javier Camarena starring as Tonio and Pretty Yende as Marie. Performances begin on 7 February, running until 2 March.
A leading specialist in bel canto opera, Enrique conducts further opera this season with Opernhaus Zurich (Il turco in Italia), at the Bregenzer Festspiele (Rigoletto), with Wiener Staatsoper (his house debut – Don Pasquale) and has already returned to Deutsche Oper Berlin to conduct their new production of Les Contes d’Hoffmann.
Below is a sneak peak of the production, taken from the dress rehearsal: “Il faut partir” sung by Pretty Yende.
