Rossini: Le Comte Ory
February 2, 2013 - 1:00pm
Approximate running time 2 hrs. 48 min.
Reviving his turn in the comic sensation of the 2010–11 season, tenor Juan Diego Flórez once again demonstrates his unsurpassed bel canto mastery in this Rossini gem, rediscovered—and reinvigorated—in Bartlett Sher’s charming and witty production. Maurizio Benini leads the ensemble, which includes Pretty Yende in her Met Debut as Countess Adèle, Karine Deshayes in the trouser role of the page Isolier, and Nathan Gunn as the raffish Raimbaud.
