Enrique Mazzola makes debut with the Metropolitan Opera



Enrique Mazzola makes his debut with the Metropolitan Opera this week, with performances of Donizetti’s ‘L’Elisir d’Amore‘. Starring Askonas Holt bass-baritone Adam Plachetka in his first Belcore, ‘L’Elisir d’Amore’ is a much-loved operatic comedy set in the Basque country, telling the story of a naïve Nemorino who is besotted with the beautiful bar owner Adina.
During the 2015/16 season Enrique Mazzola makes return visits to conduct the London Philharmonic, Vienna Symphony (on tour to China and the Bregenz Festival), Deutsche Oper Berlin (‘L’Africaine’), Zurich Opera (‘Don Pasquale’) and a new production at Glyndebourne Festival Opera (‘Il Barbiere di Siviglia’). Projects with ONDIF include Mahler Symphony No.1, ‘Rite of Spring’ and collaborations with Markus Werba and Cédric Tiberghien. Future plans include re-invitations to Zurich, Deutsche Oper Berlin and his debut with Lyric Opera, Chicago.
Adam Plachetka returns to the Metropolitan Opera in his role debut as Belcore, having made his impressive house debut last season as Masetto ‘Don Giovanni’. Adam will return to the house multiple times over the forthcoming seasons, in leading roles, continuing with Leporello and Masetto ‘Don Giovanni’ in 2016/17. Elsewhere this season Adam made his house debuts at the Lyric Opera of Chicago and at Houston Grand Opera as title role ‘Le nozze di Figaro’, will sing title role ‘Don Giovanni’ and Conte ‘Figaro’ for Wiener Staatsoper and title role ‘Figaro’ at the Salzburger Festspiele. He will also make several further appearances at the Wiener Staatsoper and Covent Garden.
Performances take place from 10 March to 2 April 2016. For more information please visit the Met website.
