Sister act

New York fans of puppylicious tenor Juan Diego Flórez will be happy to hear that he will be a fixture at the Met the next few seasons. Next year he stars in a new production of La Fille du regiment opposite his Barbiere prima donna, Diana Damrau. In 2008-2009, he headlines the first Met performances of La sonnambula since 1972, with Natalie Dessay as his sleepwalking beloved.

The Flórez vehicle for 2010 will be the Met premiere of Rossini’s Le Comte Ory. More impatient fans need wait only until December 1 for their Flórez fix, when the tenor makes his Carnegie Hall recital debut singing works by Mozart, Rossini, Rosa Mercedes Ayarza de Morales, Fauré, Massenet, Bizet, and Donizetti. Manning the 88s will be Vincenzo Scalera.
