Met Opera: IOLANTA/ DUKE BLUEBEARD’S CASTLE (Broadcast in HD)
the heels of her triumphant Met performances in Eugene Onegin, soprano
Anna Netrebko takes on another Tchaikovsky heroine in the first opera of this
intriguing double bill, consisting of an enchanting fairy tale (Iolanta)
followed by an erotic psychological thriller (Duke Bluebeard’s Castle). Netrebko
stars as the beautiful blind girl who experiences love for the first time in Iolanta,
while Nadja Michael is the unwitting victim of the diabolical Bluebeard, played
by Mikhail Petrenko. Both operas are directed by Mariusz Trelinski, who was
inspired by classic noir films of the 1940s. Iolanta also stars Piotr
Beczala, and Valery Gergiev conducts both operas.
