On December 1, a new production of L'Amour de Loin takes the stage at The Metropolitan Opera. Finnish composer Kaia Saariaho is responsible for the almost ethereal production, which stars Susanna Phillips, Tamara Mumford, and Eric Owens.
The Met describes the show as a tale of distant lovers, who cross both country as well as sea to meet one another during the 12th century. More modern are the threads of LED light that electrify the stage. If you're not fluent in French, the lyrics will be translated into English, German, and Spanish.
