Rake's Progress Returns

Just yesterday an article from the Huffington Post was released stating that Stravinsky's Rake's Progress returns back to the Met. The article states "Jonathan Miller's 1997 production of The Rake's Progress, revived at the Metropolitan Opera House for the first time since 2003, and around for only two additional performances, eschews the look. As designed by Peter J. Davidson, it goes for something entirely different. The opening scene of a tall house with treetops for a roof, and standing against a blue sky with a couple stationary clouds, is reminiscent not of Hogarth, but of René Magritte." 

This video is one of the most famous arias from this particular opera sung by Dawn Upshaw.
