This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
Due to an unfortunate injury, Sir Bryn Terfel will now be unable to sing the leading role in this performance.Franois Girard, whose revelatory 2013 take on Parsifal set the recent Met standard for Wagner stagings, now unveils a spellbinding new vision of the composers tale of a cursed sea captain doomed to sail the open ocean for eternity–live in cinemas March 14. With sweeping sets by John Macfarlane, Girards new production turns the Met stage into a rich, layered tableau reminiscent of a vast oil painting. Valery Gergiev conducts a brilliant cast led by bass-baritone Evgeny Nikitin as the Dutchman, with German soprano Anja Kampe making her anticipated Met debut as the devoted Senta, whose selfless love is what the Dutchman seeks. Bass Franz-Josef Selig is her father, Daland, and tenor Sergey Skorokhodov is her deserted former lover, Erik.
