James Robinson’s vibrant production of America’s favorite opera was a smash hit of the Met’s 2019–20 season. Bass-baritone Eric Owens and soprano Angel Blue star in the title roles, headlining a phenomenal ensemble cast. David Robertson conducts this beloved score, which includes a number of melodies that have become classic American standard.
