The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts presents “The Tempest,” by Ades, via high definition satellite broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera in New York at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 24, at the Newport Performing Arts Center.

British composer Thomas Adès conducts the Met premiere of his contemporary masterpiece “The Tempest,” an English-language opera based on Shakespeare’s final play. In the Met’s fantastical new production by Robert Lepage, Simon Keenlyside leads the cast as the exiled magician Prospero, a role he created at the opera’s 2004 world premiere. The opera also stars Isabel Leonard as Prospero’s daughter, Miranda; Alek Shrader as the shipwrecked prince, Ferdinand; Alan Oke as the monstrous island native Caliban; and Audrey Luna in the stratospheric coloratura role of the air spirit Ariel. Soprano Deborah Voigt hosts the transmission and conducts backstage interviews with the stars.
