Wagner’s soaring masterpiece makes its triumphant return to the Met stage after 17 years. In a sequel to his revelatory production of PARSIFAL, director François Girard unveils an atmospheric staging that once again weds his striking visual style and keen dramatic insight to Wagner’s breathtaking music, with Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium to conduct a supreme cast led by tenor Piotr Beczała – praised for his “shining musical performance” (The New York Times) and “natural warmth” (Financial Times) – singing the title role of the swan knight. The cast also includes much-praised soprano Tamara Wilson as the virtuous duchess Elsa and soprano Christine Goerke as the cunning sorceress Ortrud. Distinguished bass-baritone Evgeny Nikitin is Ortrud’s power-hungry husband, Telramund, and celebrated bass Günther Groissböck is King Heinrich. The live cinema transmission is part of the Met’s award-winning Live in HD series, presented in Germany and Austria by Clasart Classic.
