Bringing together the music of Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, Purcell, and their lesser-known contemporaries, Sams’s Baroque fantasy is set to a new English libretto inspired by The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. At the production’s premiere, the New York Times pronounced The Enchanted Island a “clever and touching pastiche,” and praised its “remarkable integrity and consistency,” while the UK’s Telegraph called it “a perfect storm of brilliance.” Graham will undertake the lead role of Sycorax, Caliban’s witch mother, alongside David Daniels, Danielle de Niese, and Plácido Domingo, who respectively reprise the roles of Prospero, Ariel, and Neptune (Feb 26–March 20).
