Performances take place from 19 December to 5 January. The cast includes Gabriella Reyes as First Lady, making her third role debut on the Met stage this season. Duncan Rock will perform as Papageno on 3 January.
Later this season Harry returns to the US to conduct Cleveland Orchestra, Santa Fe Opera (Cosi fan tutte and Strauss’ Four Last Songs with Renee Fleming), and Music of the Baroque. With the English Concert, he continues the orchestra’s Handel opera series with performances of Semele in Europe and the United States, including Theatre de Champs Elysées, Barbican Centre and Carnegie Hall.
