This spring, Marina Rebeka returns to New York City, to sing her first Donna Elvira at The Metropolitan Opera in Mozart’s Don Giovanni. The all-star cast and creative team includes Mariusz Kwiecien in the title role, Erwin Schrott as Leporello, Angela Meade as Donna Anna, Matthew Polenzani as Don Ottavio, and Isabel Leonard as Zerlina. Plácido Domingo leads the Met Opera Orchestra for all performances, which take place April 26 & 29 and May 3, 6 & 11.
Ms. Rebeka made her Metropolitan Opera debut in the role of Donna Anna in 2011, to critical acclaim:
“In her Met debut the striking Latvian soprano Marina Rebeka was a winning Donna Anna, singing with a clear, bright sound and cool intensity.” (New York Times)
