Program

Celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Metropolitan Opera's Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series The Met: Live in HD. An encore performance of Wagner's Tannhäuser will be shown in select cinemas on Wednesday, November 4.

James Levine conducts Wagner's early masterpiece in its first return to the Met stage in more than a decade. Today's leading Wagnerian tenor Johan Botha takes on the daunting title role, opposite soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek as Elisabeth, adding another Wagner heroine to her Met repertoire after her acclaimed Sieglinde in the Ring a few seasons ago. On the heels of his recent triumph in Parsifal, baritone Peter Mattei sings Wolfram, and mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung is the love goddess, Venus.

Director: Otto Schenk
Writer: Richard Wagner
Cast: James Levine, Eva-Maria Westbroek, Michelle DeYoung, Johan Botha, Peter Mattei and Günther Groissböck
