L’Amour de Loin
by Kaija Saariaho

Libretto by Amin Maalouf


Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho’s breakthrough opera was described by the New York Times as “transfixing…a lushly beautiful score.” Commissioned by the Salzburg Festival, where it was first seen in 2000, it will now finally have its Metropolitan Opera premiere.

Eric Owens is the knight on a quest of love and Susanna Phillips is his lover on the other side of the sea.

Finnish conductor Susanna Mälkki makes her Met debut.
