PBS To Air Thomas Adès' "The Tempest" on March 21 & 24

On March 21 and 24 (depending on your location), PBS' Great Performances will air Thomas Adès operatic adaptation of Shakespeare's The Tempest at The Metropolitan Opera. The production stars Simon Keenlyside as the exiled Prospero and Isabel Leonard as his daughter Miranda, who falls for the son (Alek Shrader) of her father's rival. BVA's Audrey Luna has received accolades for her performance in the role of Ariel, as has bass Kevin Burdette in the role of Stefano.

Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times had this to say:

“The role of the spirit Ariel is written for a coloratura soprano singing in a stratospheric range, here the physically and vocally agile Audrey Luna.… With her radiant voice flitting about in super-high fidgety bursts … Mr. Adès’s Ariel is a dazzling creation, and Ms. Luna conquers the role.”
