The Met Live in HD: Die Frau ohne Schatten (R. Strauss)

Saturday, Apr 24, 9:00 am

R. Strauss’s Die Frau ohne Schatten – Revival (First Time Live in HD)


Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Herbert Wernicke’s sensational staging of Strauss’s magisterial vision of otherworldly love, which requires a cast of the very best dramatic voices. Tenor Klaus Florian Vogt and soprano Elza van den Heever are the unearthly Emperor and Empress (the woman without a shadow), baritone Michael Volle and soprano Nina Stemme are the earth- bound Barak and his longsuffering wife, and soprano Evelyn Herlitzius is the sinister Nurse.


Tentative Run Time: 4:45


Yannick Nézet-Séguin (Conductor); Elza van den Heever (Empress), Nina Stemme (Dyer’s Wife), Evelyn Herlitzius (Nurse), Klaus Florian Vogt (Emperor), Michael Volle (Barak), Ryan Speedo Green (Messenger)
