The Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès’ The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by The New York Times as “inventive and audacious … a major event,” this surreal fantasy captures a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Adès himself conducts, and Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production of this adventurous opera.
