‘Tempest’ for Moderns
Sandy was not the only storm to arrive in Manhattan.
Nov 12, 2012, Vol. 18, No. 09 • By KELLY JANE TORRANCE
The Tempest continues in New York until the middle of this month, and, thanks to the marriage of an old art form with new technology, Thomas Adès might finally enjoy the same renown here that he has in his native land. The Tempest will be part of the Met’s “Live in HD” series, transmitted live in high-definition to movie theaters across North America on November 10 (and shown again on November 28), before it makes its way to television and to DVD.
