Inspired by the Luis Buñuel film, Thomas Adès (The Tempest) brings his latest opera, which the New York Times calls “inventive and audacious,’ to the Metropolitan Opera. The topic is a surreal dinner party from which guests can’t escape. The composer conducts the large cast that includes Audrey Luna, Amanda Echalaz, Sally Matthews, Sophie Bevan, Alice Coote, Christine Rice, Iestyn Davies, Joseph Kaiser, Frédéric Antoun, David Portillo, David Adam Moore, Rod Gilfry, Kevin Burdette, Christian Van Horn and Sir John Tomlinson.
