A major force in bringing great 20th century works to the Met repertory, James Levine took on Stravinsky’s only full-length opera to enormous acclaim. “[Mr. Levine] has a powerful vision of this work, and it came through to the cheering audience,” declared The New York Times. This revival featured a stellar cast to do justice to the brilliant, neoclassical score: Paul Groves as the impressionable Tom Rakewell, Dawn Upshaw as Anne Trulove, Samuel Ramey as Nick Shadow, and Stephanie Blythe as Baba the Turk.
Live performance recorded April 19, 2003.
