One
of the most highly praised operas of recent years, which had its premiere at
the Salzburg Festival in 2000, Kaija Saariaho’s yearning medieval romance
L’Amour de Loin (“Love From Afar”), has its Met premiere this season. The
production is by Robert Lepage, co-produced with L’Opéra de Québec, where it
premiered to acclaim last summer, in collaboration with Ex Machina. Debuting
Finnish conductor Susanna Mälkki leads the performance, which stars Susanna
Phillips as Clémence, Eric Owens as Jaufré, and Tamara Mumford as the Pilgrim
who carries messages of love between them

Run Time: 3:00
