UPDATE: If you missed it, the MET confirmed this production, cast and times (See here) on Thursday. That was a lucky guess wasn't it? As the production will be premiering at Opera de Lyon in a few days, I will bring you pictures and video then. In the mean time click here and go to the METs promo video for this production (thanks to Classical Iconclast)
