MET Opera conducting Debut.
"The tenor Jorge de León, making his Metropolitan Opera debut, started off with a brusque “Celeste Aida,” but relaxed enough by the second-act triumphal scene to show off a healthy tone in high notes, glinting metal yet mellow. This scene also smiled on another debutant, the conductor Daniele Rustioni, by displaying his emphatic, punchy style to best advantage."
