Saariaho’s L’Amour de Loin

One of the most highly praised operas of recent years, which had its premiere at the Salzburg Festival in 2000, this yearning medieval romance L’Amour de Loin (“Love From Afar”), has its Met premiere this season.

The production is by Robert Lepage, co-produced with L’Opéra de Québec, where it premiered to acclaim last summer, in collaboration with Ex Machina.  Debuting Finnish conductor Susanna Mälkki leads the performance, which stars Susanna Phillips as Clémence, Eric Owens as Jaufré, and Tamara Mumford as the Pilgrim who carries messages of love between them. 


Approx. running time: 3 hrs.
