Wagner's early dramatic masterpiece, Tannhäuser returns to the Met stage after almost a decade. Johan Botha, leading Wagnerian tenor, sings his first company performances of the demanding title role. The cast also includes Peter Mattei as Wolfram, his second Met Wagner role; Günther Groissböck as the Landgraf; and Eva-Maria Westbroek as Elisabeth and Michelle DeYoung as Venus, the human and divine rivals for Tannhäuser’s affection.
