Met Opera in HD

Tony Award-winning composer Jeanine Tesori's powerful new opera wrestles with often-overlooked issues inherent in 21st-century warmaking: the ethical conflicts created by the use of modern military technology and the psychological and emotional toll supposedly safe remote technology takes on our servicepersons. Canadian mezzo-soprano Emily D'Angelo stars as the hot-shot fighter pilot whose unplanned pregnancy takes her out of the cockpit and lands her in Las Vegas, operating a Reaper drone halfway around the world. Confronted by the challenges of this new way of doing battle, she must fight to hold on to her sanity—and her soul. Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin oversees the Met premiere of Tesori's score and a cast that also features tenor Ben Bliss as Eric, the Wyoming rancher who becomes Jess's husband. Michael Mayer's high-tech staging presents a variety of perspectives on the action, including the drone's predatory view from high above.
