 New Met star Michael Volle sings the title role of the ghostly sailor damned to wander the seas in search of the love that will set him free, under the baton of the exciting Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Amber Wagner is Senta, whose love he seeks. The powerhouse cast also includes Dolora Zajick, Ben Bliss, Franz-Josef Selig, and Jay Hunter Morris as Erik, returning for the first time after his memorable portrayal of Siegfried in Wagner’s Ring.
