Director François Girard weds his visual style and dramatic insight to Wagner’s music, with Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium to conduct a 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 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. (2023) — Sgt. Tiki
