CHEREAU--Patrice. The Metropolitan Opera mourns the death of the great director of theater, film, and opera, Patrice Chereau. He permanently changed the face of staged opera with his legendary 1976 Ring Cycle in Bayreuth, influencing an entire generation of stage directors who followed. Although his only work to play at the Met in his lifetime was his genius production of Janacek's "From the House of the Dead" in 2009, it will never be forgotten. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and legions of admirers throughout the world. Peter Gelb, General Manager James Levine, Music Director
