At the Met, a daring new production of ‘Carmen’ takes flight

Mezzo-soprano Aigul Akhmetshina made a magnetic … Carmen … A restless physicality that never cut into her singing … A Carmen that felt alive.

The Metropolitan Opera closed out 2023 with the opening of a new “Carmen,” offering a sold-out house another opportunity to revisit George Bizet’s relentlessly popular 1875 staple of the repertoire. And mezzo-soprano Aigul Akhmetshina made a magnetic and often caustic Carmen, her voice equally suited to silken lightness as leathery depth. The show barely seemed to move before she emerged from behind a blood-red door on a catwalk above the action. Her Act I introduction, that familiar habanera (“L’amour est un oiseau rebelle”), was freshened by her humanistic reading, lightened by luminous choral work, and refined through the detail-oriented ear of conductor Daniele Rustioni.

Lise Davidsen lights up La forza del destino at the Met with refined singing 

The soprano shines in a masterly New York staging of Verdi’s opera of love and revenge. 

Lise Davidsen's performance as Leonora in Verdi's La forza del destino at the Metropolitan Opera can only be described as towering. The ovation that greeted her in Monday/s opening after she sang "Pace, pace mio Dio" in act four was so fervent and sustained that she had to break character and take a modest bow so things could continue. Joined by music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin in the pit, the applause continued for another minute before the opera resumed.
