    British composer Thomas Adès makes his company debut conducting the Met premiere of his opera The Tempest. Robert Lepage's production recreates the interior of the La Scala opera house as the magical island venue for the otherworldly arts of Prospero, the exiled Duke of Milan. Simon Keenlyside sings Prospero. The opera also stars Isabel Leonard as Prospero's daughter, Miranda; Toby Spence as his brother, Antonio; Audrey Luna as the spirit Ariel; Iestyn Davies as the jester, Trinculo; Alek Shrader as the noble Ferdinand; Alan Oke as Caliban; and William Burden as the King of Naples. The libretto, by Meredith Oakes, is adapted from the original text of Shakespeare's play. Approx. Runtime: 3:30 Tickets: $32, $29, $20
