The Rake’s Progress

May 09, 2015
 

James Levine revisits one of his favorite 20th-century classics: Stravinsky’s only full-length opera, with its wondrous neo-classical score, back on the Metropolitan Opera stage for the first time in 12 years. Paul Appleby adds another leading role as Tom Rakewell, opposite Layla Claire as Anne Trulove, Stephanie Blythe as the bearded lady Baba the Turk, and Gerald Finley as the devilish Nick Shadow.
