Following the rapturous response to his last opera, The Tempest, the Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès’s The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event,” The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera.

The crowning jewel of Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Opera House is one of the world's great stages. The beauty of the hall is stupendous, but the distance of the rear seating from the stage is dizzying.There are small electronic screens ("Met Titles") in front of every seat that can be activated to show the text of the opera (in English).
