Airs Saturday, April 21st at 10am on KWTU Classical 88.7-1

The Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with a live broadcast of Wagner’s Siegfried, the third installment in Wagner’s epic cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen. Jay Hunter Morris stars as the title character, a hero so brave that he literally does not know the meaning of the word “fear.” The celebrated cast of Wagnerians also includes Deborah Voigt as Brünnhilde; Bryn Terfel as the Wanderer; and Gerhard Siegel as Mime. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads the performance, which is part of a complete Ring cycle presented in a groundbreaking new production by Robert Lepage. 

Morris stepped in at the last minute to take over the demanding role of Siegfried earlier this season in an acclaimed house role debut. He made his Met debut as Števa in Janá?ek’s Jenufa in 2007 and sang the role of Siegfried in complete Ring cycles at San Francisco Opera last season. 

The intermissions will include backstage interviews and the popular Metropolitan Opera Quiz.
