Le Comte Ory: "Que les destins prospères" -- Juan Diego Flórez (Met Opera)

Singer: Juan Diego Flórez

Rossini's vocally dazzling comedy soars with bel canto sensation Juan Diego Flórez in the title role of this Met premiere production. He vies with mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, in the trouser role of Isolier, for the love of the lonely Countess Adèle, sung by soprano Diana Damrau. Bartlett Sher, director of the Met's popular productions of Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Les Contes d'Hoffmann, describes the world of "Le Comte Ory" as, "a place where love is dangerous. People get hurt. That can be very funny and very painful. Rossini captures both—with the most beautiful love music he ever wrote."
