Terrific Production Proves Why Pecheurs de Perles (The Pearl Fishers) Is Vital to Repertoire

Metropolitan Opera 2013-14 Review - 'Cosi Fan Tutte': Marvelous Cast & Conductor Deliver Complex Comedy in Mozart's Timeless Masterwork

The season is winding down, and this is the perfect way to say goodbye to what has been a successful run of performances in 2013-14.
