Following the rapturous response to his last opera, The Tempest, the Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Ades's The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Bunuel 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 dinner party from which the guests can't escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Ades conducts his own adventurous new opera.
Music by Thomas Ades, libretto by Tom Cairns in collaboration with the composer, based on the screenplay by Luis Bunuel and Luis Alcoriza
