Jeremy Sams returns to the Met, after his major success with The Enchanted Island, to direct a new production of Johann Strauss’s beloved operatic confection, with a revised libretto by acclaimed playwright Douglas Carter Beane. Sams places the action in turn-of-the-century Vienna, an elegant, opulent setting with echoes of Gustav Klimt’s glittering paintings (and of Sigmund Freud’s newly fashionable ideas). Susanna Phillips and Christopher Maltman lead the sparkling cast, which also features Christine Schäfer, Anthony Roth Costanzo, Michael Fabiano, and Paulo Szot. Adam Fischer conducts.

Production a gift of The Sybil B. Harrington Endowment Fund; and
Howard Solomon, in honor of his wife, Sarah Billinghurst Solomon
