Lucy Crowe makes thrilling debut at the Met
Lucy Crowe took another important step in her already brilliant career with a critically acclaimed performance of Servilia in Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito at New York’s Metropolitan Opera. “Gleaming” wrote the New York Times, “Ravishing” wrote the New York Post and “splendid….and bell-like purity” wrote the Washington Post.
This continues a wonderful season for her that started with performances of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in Australia with the Australian Chamber Orchestra and then with the Monteverdi Choir and Orchestra under Sir John Eliot Gardiner throughout Europe. The rest of this season brings Rosina at English National Opera and Gilda in a new production of Rigoletto at the Deutsche Oper, Berlin before returning to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden for Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro.
The performances at the Met also include Elina Garanca as Sesto (“lustrous” said the New York Post and Washington Post) conducted by Harry Bicket (“propulsive, shapely” – Washington Post).
The remaining performance dates are 24th November, 1st, 6th and 10th December. The performance on Saturday 1st December will be broadcast to cinemas worldwide as part of the Met’s Live in HD series.
