I Puritani Tickets

  • About I Puritani

    Set in the 17th Century Plymouth during the English Civil War, I Puritani combines romantic passion with political and military intrigue and features one of the most famous mad scenes in operatic history. Elvira is engaged to Arturo, but when her intended leaves Plymouth with the disguised Enrichetta, widow of the executed King Charles I, in order to protect the endangered former queen, the young girl believes he has abandoned her and is driven mad. Risking his life for having betrayed the anti-Royalists, Arturo returns to his beloved. Soldiers call for his execution, but a last minute reprieve from Oliver Cromwell, leader of the rebels, saves him and he and Elvira are reunited.

    The electrifying Diana Damrau is Elvira, the young maiden driven mad when she believes she has lost her love. She is joined by three bel canto stars, Javier Camarena as Arturo with Alexy Markov and Luca Pisaroni as soldiers caught in the English Civil War. Maurizio Benini conducts.

    Sung in Italian with Met Titles in English, German, Italian and Spanish.

    Performances vary from February 10 to February 28, 2017.
