Wagner’s early opera features a title role that has tempted many great bass-baritones to put their stamp on. James Morris is a singing actor able to convey the rich drama of the part while making it sound easy, thrilling audiences with the sheer power of his voice. James Levine’s authoritative leadership of the Met Orchestra and Chorus adds immeasurably to the excitement of the performance. This broadcast stars Mechthild Gessendorf as Senta, the woman who will die for the doomed Dutchman, and Paul Plishka as her father, Daland.
