La fanciulla del west side

Bigger! Longer! Uncut?

Jonas Kaufmann‘s Dick will highlight the Met’s 2018-2019 season, when the tenor sings a new production of Puccini’s La fanciulla del West in New York. (Not to be confused with La fanciulla del West in New York, a forthcoming work from Adams and Sellars.) Until  now, only Vienna State Opera audiences have had the honor of enjoying Kaufmann’s Johnson.

The big news is part of Opera magazine’s monthly roundup of future engagements, which currently (embarrassment of riches!) includes the announcement of Sarah Tynan‘s role debut as Lucia.
