Lise Davidsen makes her greatly anticipated return to the Metropolitan Opera, starring as Eva in Wagner’s enchanting Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. Taking the Met stage for the first time in seven years, Wagner’s sublime comedy is paired with a marvelous production by Otto Schenk, with sets designed by Günther Schneider-Siemssen.
Performances will take place on October 26, 30, and November 4, 7, 11, 14. Ms. Davidsen will share the stage with a star-studded roster of artists, including Claudia Mahnke as Magdalene, Klaus Florian Vogt as Walther von Stolzing, Paul Appleby as David, and Michael Volle as Hans Sachs, among others. Antonio Pappano conducts.
This season at the Met Opera, Lise will also star in two Strauss operas, including her signature title role of Ariadne auf Naxos in Elijah Moshinsky’s imaginative production and Chrysothemis in Patrice Chéreau’s magnificent staging of Elektra.
