THE METROPOLITAN OPERA – The Exterminating Angel (LIVE)

THE METROPOLITAN OPERA – The Exterminating Angel (LIVE)

Take a seat at the strangest dinner party of your life. The servants have absconded; the ragout is all over the floor; there’s a bear in the garden; your fellow guests are rapidly descending into savagery; and most mysteriously of all, no one seems able to leave.

British composer Thomas Adès (The Tempest) conducts the American premiere of his latest opera. Co-commissioned by the Met and sung in English, this black comedy, with shades of JG Ballard/Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise, is based on the screenplay of Luis Buñuel’s 1962 surrealist film.

The cast is filled with established British names including Sally Matthews, Sophie Bevan, Alice Coote, Christine Rice, Ieystn Davies and John Tomlinson.

“Inventive and audacious… a major event” (New York Times).

Café open from 5pm. Please call our Box Office on 01768 868000 to pre-book a table.

Please make any enquiries about interval times by calling the Box Office during the week leading up to the show.
