The Exterminating Angel

Thomas Adès

Estimated Run Time 2hrs 27mins

Following the rapturous response to his last opera, The Tempest, the Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès’s The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event,” The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a fantastical dinner party of 12 bourgeois guests are inexplicably unable to leave and are thrown into chaos as their bizarre incarceration leads into madness. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera.

Sung in English
