Rossini's vocally dazzling comedy soars with bel canto sensation Juan Diego Flórez in the title role of this Met premiere production. He vies with mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, in the trouser role of Isolier, for the love of the lonely Countess Adèle, sung by soprano Diana Damrau. Director Bartlett Sher describes the world of Le Comte Ory as, "A place where love is dangerous. People get hurt. That can be very funny and very painful. Rossini captures bothwith the most beautiful love music he ever wrote."
