In early May 2021, opera lovers the world over tuned into our Met Stars Live in Concert series to see four of today’s most exhilarating dramatic artists join forces at Germany’s Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden. Sopranos Christine Goerke and Elza van den Heever, tenor Andreas Schager, and baritone Michael Volle came together for a concert of music by Wagner and Strauss, accompanied by Grammy Award–winner Craig Terry at the piano. Featuring some of the repertory’s most soaring arias and duets, the program included selections from Der Fliegende Holländer, Das Rheingold, Tannhäuser, Lohengrin, Die Walküre, and Parsifal, as well as a pair of Strauss songs and Wagner’s complete Wesendonck Lieder. And as if the evening wasn’t thrilling enough, the performance was capped by a suitably grand finale: the uplifting conclusion from Die Frau ohne Schatten.
