In the Press

On New Year's Eve, New York's Metropolitan Opera will debut a new work in an unusual genre: It might be described as an opera mash-up.

"The Enchanted Island" is a pastiche of existing Baroque music written by composers including Handel, Vivaldi and Rameau. It's also a mixture of two Shakespeare plays, woven together by creator and writer Jeremy Sams: The two central couples from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" are shipwrecked on an island containing characters from "The Tempest." Baroque expert William Christie conducts.
