La Donna del LagoJoyce DiDonato and Juan Diego Flórez join forces for this Rossini showcase of bel canto virtuosity, set in the medieval Scottish highlands. DiDonato is the “lady of the lake” of the title, and Flórez is the king who relentlessly pursues her, with their vocal fireworks embellishing the tragic plot. This Met premiere production is directed by Paul Curran and conducted by Michele Mariotti. This is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera and the Santa Fe Opera. A discussion of the opera will take place 45 minutes prior to the 1 p.m. broadcast.
