Met, ENO team on two operas

August 16, 2007|From the Associated Press

New York's Metropolitan Opera and the English National Opera will co-produce stagings of John Adams' "Doctor Atomic" and a new work by Osvaldo Golijov.

"Doctor Atomic," which had its world premiere at the San Francisco Opera in October 2005, will open at the Met on Oct. 13, 2008, and at the ENO in February 2009, the companies announced Wednesday.

The Golijov opera, with a libretto by Academy Award winner Anthony Minghella, will have a workshop at the ENO and tentatively is slated for a world premiere in London in 2010. It would appear at the Met during the 2011-12 season.

"The combined resources of our companies and schedules allow for greater artistic preparation and development that these new works demand," Met General Manager Peter Gelb said.
