History

The Exterminating Angel

The Exterminating Angel, written by British composer, Thomas Adès, is an English-language, three-act opera based on Luis Bunuel’s 1962 film by the same name.

The opera is set in Spain at a posh dinner party in a lavish mansion, from which the guests find themselves strangely unable to leave.

Of special note in the Met’s production are the live woolly sheep, which appear onstage, followed shortly by a bear, all intended as entertainment for the party.

The modern score features familiar orchestral instruments, teeny-tiny violins, slamming doors, clanging rocks, a rattle with bottle caps, cowbells, a salad bowl and an ondes martenot for the eerie sound that is more or less the theme of the title character.

The role of Leticia required soprano Audrey Luna to sing an A above high C, which is the highest documented sung note in the history of the Metropolitan Opera.

The opera, Adès' third, was a joint commission between the Salzburg Festival, The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, the Metropolitan Opera and the Royal Danish Opera.

The Exterminating Angel received its world premiere July 28, 2016, at the Haus für Mozart, Salzburg. Most recently, it was staged during the Met’s 2017-18 season.
