MET 2022/23: Lohengrin
TICKETS £17.50, £14.50 concs.
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 François Girard unveils an atmospheric staging that once again weds his striking visual style and keen dramatic insight to Wagner’s breathtaking music, with Music Director Yannick Nézet–Sé guin 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 Ortrud’s power–hungry husband, Telramund, and bass Günther Groissböck is King Heinrich.

Five stars for Lohengrin - an outstanding new Met production.
Moments of visual cataclysm and transformation are timed to the music to stunning effect.
...Lohengrin himself seems to descend from eternity, and return to it. The final image was indelible.
