The Metropolitan Opera says it has replaced next season’s revival of Robert LePage’s 2008 production of Berlioz’s Damnation de Faust.
‘Unanticipated technical demands,’they say.
LePage’s staging of Wagner’s Ring has been a long-running Met nightmare.
Looks like Gelb has decided that LePage is no longer the Messiah.
Faust will be replaced by concert performances of Berlioz’s légende dramatique, conducted by Edward Gardner, with Elīna Garanča, Ildar Abdrazakov, Bryan Hymel and Michael Spyres.
