NCPA , 2 Xi Chang'an Jie Sat 20 Jan
Just as a young woman is about to marry her sweetheart, she is discovered, by her entire village, asleep in the bedroom of a stranger. It takes the young man two acts to figure out that sleepwalking is to blame, and everything ends happily. Natalie Dessay as Amina and Juan Diego Flórez as Elvino deliver magic and vocal fireworks in Mary Zimmerman's 2009 production. The Tony award-winning director transfers Bellini's bucolic tale to a rehearsal room in contemporary New York, where an opera company rehearses La Sonnambula - and where the singers are truly in love with each other. Italian with Chinese subtitles.
