The Met welcomes Nézet-Séguin with a new Traviata

La traviata © Marty Sohl | Metropolitan Opera
A new production of La Traviata, colorful and conventional, brings little new ideas but is a fine vehicle for a fine performance conducted by Yannick Nezet-Seguin that features a trio of excellent singers.

Pretty Yende (Leïla) and Javier Camarena (Nadir) © Marty Sohl | Metropolitan Opera
The second performance of the Met's Pearl Fishers saw one of the leads withdraw mid-performance again. A welcome performance by young baritone Alexander Birch Elliott could not rescue the evening.

Isabel Leonard (Marnie) and Iestyn Davies (Terry) © Ken Howard | Metropolitan Opera
The cast, sets, costumes and direction of Muhly's opera Marnie impress, but the music somehow falls short of expectations.
