Mr. Bliss appeared alongside a winning cast for Phelim McDermott’s clever vision of Mozart’s comedy about the sexes, set in a carnival-esque, funhouse environment inspired by 1950s Coney Island—complete with bearded ladies, fire eaters, and a Ferris wheel. This production featured the Don Alfonso of Christopher Maltman and the Despina of Tony Award–winner Kelli O’Hara, with Amanda Majeski, Serena Malfi, Ben Bliss, and Adam Plachetka as the pairs of young lovers who test each other’s faithfulness. David Robertson conducted.
PBS showcased this spring's Metropolitan Opera production of Così fan tutte as part of its Great Performances series. Enjoyed by thousands of viewers in cinemas all over the world in Met HDLive this spring, Mr. Bliss's performance as Ferrando was hailed for his "ideally sweet voice and boyish earnestness" (The New York Times).
This production was broadcast live in select cinemas across the world on March 31, 2018, and on PBS on July 29, 2018. The broadcast will be available via the MetHD Player in the coming months.
