Metropolitan Opera House
20 Lincoln Center Plz, New York, NY 10023
The Metropolitan Opera presents the last and one of the greatest of Vincenzo Bellini's operas, "I Puritani". Based on a novel by Sir Walter Scott, Bellini's bel canto gem unfolds during a tumultuous English civil war and features mad scenes filled with pathos and achingly beautiful music. Elvira has been promised to one man, but loves another. When she believes the object of her affection has betrayed her, she descends into madness. Javier Camarena and Diana Damrau sing the roles of the lovers in this electrifying opera production at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City.
