Saturday, March 14, see Gioacchino Rossini’s La Donna del Lago.
Bel canto superstars Joyce DiDonato and Juan Diego Flórez join forces for this Rossini showcase of vocal virtuosity, set in the medieval Scottish highlands and based on a beloved novel by Sir Walter Scott. DiDonato is the “lady of the lake” of the title, and Flórez is the king who relentlessly pursues her, their vocal fireworks embellishing the romantic plot in this Met premiere production conducted by Michele Mariotti.
The opera begins at noon.
Tickets are available at the Pioneer Bookshop, the Grinnell College Bookstore, and at the door on the day of the show.
