Wagner's soaring masterpiece makes its triumphant return to the Met. His shimmering invocation of the Swan Knight and the ethereal realm from which he comes, marks a crucial stage in Wagner's development as a composer.
In a sequel to his revelatory production of Parsifal, director François Girard unveils an atmospheric staging that 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 in the title role of the mysterious Swan Knight.
Sopranos Tamara Wilson and Elena Stikhina, as the virtuous duchess Elsa, falsely accused of murder, go head-to-head with soprano Christine Goerke as the cunning sorceress Ortrud, who seeks to lay her low. Bass-baritone Evgeny Nikitin is Ortrud's power-hungry husband, Telramund, and bass Günther Groissböck is King Heinrich.
