Breaking: David Daniels is the Met’s Orfeo

The mystery is solved, and, as usual, La Cieca predicted it well ahead of the official announcement. Per the Met’s website, David Daniels will sing the four performances of the new Orfeo ed Euridice production in May 2007.

David joins a distinguished group of artists who have interpreted the role of Orfeo at the Met, including Louise Homer, Kerstin Thorborg, Risë Stevens, Grace Bumbry and Marilyn Horne. The revival of Orfeo will mark the Met’s first performances of the opera since 1972.

The Met’s website notes that the production is dedicated to the memory of Lorraine Hunt Lieberson.
