by Richard Wagner
Wagner’s profound comedy about tradition and innovation in art in a performance from last fall. Maestro Antonio Pappano made a triumphant return to the Met podium, leading the Met Orchestra and Chorus in this rich score. Baritone Michael Volle starred as the wise shoemaker Hans Sachs, alongside tenor Klaus Florian Vogt as the impetuous young Walther, and soprano Lise Davidsen as Eva.
