Major leak: Jaap, Honeck and Duncan Ward to conduct Met’s next seasonNews
A usually reliable fan channel has obtained a full rundown of the Metropolitan Opera’s next season, well ahead of official release.
Among the highlights are some unexpected conductors, among them the very young British conductor Duncan Ward (pictured), the well-connected Keri-Lynn Wilson doing Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, Jaap Van Zweden most fittingly taking on The Flying-out Dutchman and Nathalie Stutzmann conducting The Magic Flute.
Among other novelties, Joyce DiDonato will sing Virginia Woolf in Kevin Puts’s The Hours.
