In what is expected to be a Wagnerian event for the ages, soprano Christine Goerke plays Brünnhilde, Wotan’s willful warrior daughter, who loses her immortality in opera’s most famous act of filial defiance. Tenor Stuart Skelton and soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek play the incestuous twins Siegmund and Sieglinde. Greer Grimsley sings Wotan. Philippe Jordan conducts.

    Diana Ross says:

    Apologies folks… there were transmission issues from the Met and they weren’t able to resolve the issue until near 1pm. They started the opera transmission in-progress for us, so the beginning has been chopped off.
