Lohengrin

300 Minutes
Wagner’s soaring masterpiece makes triumphant return to the Met, starring tenor Piotr Beczała as the mysterious swan knight. Yannick Nzet-Sguin conducts.
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 Franois Girard unveils an atmospheric staging that once again weds his striking visual style and keen dramatic insight to Wagners breathtaking music, with Music Director Yannick Nzet-Sguin on the podium to conduct a supreme cast led by tenor Piotr Beczała in the title role of the mysterious swan knight. Soprano Tamara Wilson is the virtuous duchess Elsa, falsely accused of murder, going head to head with soprano Christine Goerke as the cunning sorceress Ortrud, who seeks to lay her low. Bass-baritone Evgeny Nikitin is Ortruds power-hungry husband, Telramund, and bass Gnther Groissbck is King Heinrich.
