Fathom Events and The Met: Live in HD present a broadcast of Thomas Adès’s The Exterminating Angel.
The Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès’s The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. It features the highest note ever sung in the 137-year history of the Met. 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 Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera.
