Will robots replace prompters? Will random number generators replace stage directors? Who knows what the future will bring? Well, La Cieca’s informant has a few ideas, so take a look after the jump for some possible things to come at the Met.

The futur-o-scope hints at the following opening nights, all theoretically new productions:

2012: L’elisir d’amore [Netrebko ,Polenzani, Kwiecien, Gavanelli, d. Sher, c. TBA]

2013: Eugene Onegin [Netrebko, Semenchuk, Beczala, Kwiecien, d. TBA , c. Gergiev]

2014: Le nozze di Figaro [d. Grandage, c. Levine (?)]

2015: Der Rosenkavalier

2016: Tristan und Isolde

2017: La forza del destino

The cher public are invited to make educated guesses as to casting and artistic personnel.
