Le Comte Ory had never been presented at the Metropolitan Opera until Thursday night, when the director Bartlett Sher's lively, colorful and inventive production was introduced. Maurizio Benini conducted a stylish and buoyant if sometimes breathless performance.

The New York Times, 2011

Closed 5 Feb 2013
Reviving his turn in the comic sensation of the 2010/11 season, tenor Juan Diego Florez once again demonstrates his unsurpassed bel canto mastery in the lead role of Count Ory in this Rossini gem, rediscovered and reinvigorated in Bartlett Sher's charming and witty production.

Maurizio Benini leads the ensemble, which includes Pretty Yende in her Met Debut as Countess Adele, Karine Deshayes in the trouser role of the page Isolier, and Nathan Gunn as the raffish Raimbaud.
