The Met’s 13th season of live movie theater transmissions includes spectacular productions featuring opera’s greatest stars. A spring full of devouring passion, violence and jealousy. But also of budding love, self-sacrifice and martyrdom. Opera, streamed live, from the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
In what is expected to be a Wagnerian event for the ages, soprano Christine Goerke plays Brünnhilde, Wotan’s willful warrior daughter, who loses her immortality in opera’s most famous act of filial defiance. Tenor Stuart Skelton and soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek play the incestuous twins Siegmund and Sieglinde. Greer Grimsley sings Wotan. Philippe Jordan conducts.
The performance has Swedish subtitles.
