The Enchanted Island Met Summer Encore

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014 - 7:00 PM (local time)

Expected running time: 195 minutes

A contemporary take on the 18th-century genre of the pastiche, this delightful Baroque fantasy brings together some of the greatest arias and ensembles by Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, Purcell, and other composers, with a new English libretto by Jeremy Sams, inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The all-star cast is headed by David Daniels as Prospero, Joyce DiDonato as Sycorax, Danielle de Niese as Ariel, Luca Pisaroni as Caliban, and the legendary Plácido Domingo as Neptune. William Christie conducts this dazzling world-premiere production.

An encore performance of Handel, Vivaldi & Rameau’s The Enchanted Island will be shown in select cinemas on Wednesday, July 16, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. in all time zones.
