Anna Netrebko will perform in Don Pasquale at the Met 2010-2011 Season

Today the Metropolitan Opera has announced the new 2010-2011 Season. Anna Netrrebko sings Norina in a revival of Otto Schenk's production of Donizetti's Don Pasquale. Matthew Polenzani and Barry Banks (18. Nov 2010) are Ernesto, Mariusz Kwiecien is Dr. Malatesta and John del Carlo is Don Pasquale. James Levine conducts all performances, except the one on 18. Nov 2010, for which the conductor has to be announced.

Two runs have been scheduled. The first one, with 6 performances (29. Oct, 2., 6., 10., 13., 18. Nov 2010), runs from 29. Oct to 18. Nov 2010 and the second one, with 5 performances (4., 8., 11., 14., 19. Feb 2011), runs from 4. Feb to 19. Feb 2011.

The performance on 13. Nov 2010 will be live broadcast within the Met Live in HD Series.

Anna Netrebko made her debut as Norina at the Met on 31. Mar 2006, opposite Juan Diego Florez as Ernesto, Mariusz Kwiecien as Dr Malatesta and Simone Alaimo as Don Pasquale. Before the 3rd Act Joseph Volpe, general manager of the Met at that time, came on stage to announce that Juan Diego Florez had suffered an "allergic attack" and would be replaced by Barry Banks for the final act. The conductor was Maurizio Benini. Check out the Don Pasquale page at the Met Archives for a collection of photos of the production.

  1. Having seen her before in this role at MET, you are all in for a treat! I recall her taking a somerault into a bed and putting on a pair of stockings. All of this while singing. You will not be disappointed.
