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 Franc¸ois 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 Ne´zet-Se´guin on the podium to conduct a supreme cast led by tenor Piotr Beczala in the title role of the mysterious swan knight.
