Why See Metropolitan Opera: The Rake's Progress?

Back with the Metropolitan Opera for the first time in 12 years, Stravinsky's classic moral tale of the The Rake's Progress warns us that the Devil makes work for idle hands. Tom Rakewell learns the hard way when, bored of Anna Trulove, his betrothed, he meets Nick Shadow and finds himself at his mercy.
