The Metropolitan Opera’s 2014-15 season announcement includes the news that Oren Gradus will return to the company in 2015 to star in La Donna del Lago. The company’s first-ever production of Rossini’s bel canto gem is directed by Paul Curran.
Oren sings the role of Duglas, the father to Joyce DiDonato’s eponymous “lady of the lake” and former tutor to Juan Diego Flórez’s Giacomo, King of Scotland. Michele Mariotti conducts the performances, which run February 16 through March 14. March 14 also marks the performance’s transmission to theaters around the world as part of the Met’s Live in HD series.
