The week in NY opera (January 2-8)

Metropolitan Opera:
Fille (M/F), Hansel&Gretel (T/SM), Enchanted Island (W/SE), Faust (Th)
Although there aren't any new shows this week, there are two notable turns: first, Wednesday's first regular (non-holiday, non-gala) chance to see The Enchanted Island, and second, Thursday's debut of the season's third Faust cast. Joseph Calleja, Ferruccio Furlanetto, and Kate Lindsey are exciting additions to the latter who might perhaps offset Marina Poplavskaya's excessively humorless Marguerite.
