Welcome to the White Shirt live comment thread for Rossini’s “Le Comte Ory” from the MET (2011), staged by Bartlett Sher and under the baton of Maurizio Benini.
The cast features
Diana Damrau as Countess Adèle
Joyce DiDonato as Isolier
Juan Diego Flórez as Count Ory
Stéphane Degout as Raimbaud
Susanne Resmark as Ragonde
Michele Pertusi as Ory’s Tutor.
The production is officially available online via iTunes for the (rather steep) price of €20, if youaare looking for a single stream-on-demand. There is also a DVD/BR (and, in a pinch, there is the White Shirt network).
The libretto is available in French/Italian, French only, or German with switch to optional French tab – if you have an English version, please post it below and I will edit it in here.
