Mozart’s early masterpiece is revived in Jean-Pierre Ponnelle’s somewhat dusty production. Young talent are featured with Matthew Polenzani singing the title role and American-born Nadine Sierra singing Ilia. South African Elza van den Heever returns this season to sing Elettra after last season’s searing portrayal of Elizabeth I in Maria Stuarda. Alan Opie, Alice Coote and Ying Fang round out the cast that is scheduled to be conducted by James Levine.
