Tony nominee Kathleen Turner makes her Metropolitan Opera debut February 7 in Donizetti’s comic opera La Fille du Régiment. The production, which stars Pretty Yende and Javier Camarena as its star-crossed lovers, will also be transmitted live to movie theatres March 2.
Turner plays the non-singing role of Duchess of Krakenthorp, joining a list of distinguished actors to take on the role at the Met, including Jane White (1983), Bea Arthur (1994), and Marian Seldes (2008).
Yende and Camarena play the lead roles of Marie and Tonio, with Stephanie Blythe as the Marquise of Berkenfield, and Alessandro Corbelli and Maurizio Muraro sharing the role of Sulpice. The Laurent Pelly production is conducted by Enrique Mazzola.
