Susanna Phillips, Tamara Mumford, and Eric Owens star in Robert Lepage’s
dazzling production conducted by Susanna Mälkki in her Met debut.
“Iridescently beautiful. [Kaija Saariaho] conjures currents, surf, spray, and geysers…with a ceaseless, phosphorescent sea of sound… Susanna Mälkki summons the score’s swells and undertows with Poseidon-like powers… She proves herself an indispensable marvel.” —New York Magazine
“Powerful… Rich and original… Eric Owens, in one of his finest Met roles, makes an achingly vulnerable Jaufré. Susanna Phillips looks and sounds radiant as Clémence. Tamara Mumford brings mellow sound and calm dignity to the role of the pilgrim.” —New York Times
“This vivid, enormously affecting production, conceived by Robert Lepage, is a landmark in itself.” —Wall Street Journal
“One of the operatic wonders of our time.” —WQXR
“Magical. A journey to operatic bliss.” —New York Observer
