The MET: Live in HD presents Siegfried with Jay Hunter Morris in the 3rd Installment of the Ring Cycle

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5 at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT


The third installment of Robert Lepage’s visually stunning new staging of Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen follows the adventures of opera’s ultimate hero, a valiant warrior who literally does not know the meaning of the word “fear.” Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads an all-star cast featuring Jay Hunter Morris in his first Met performances of the title role, one of the most challenging in the entire operatic canon. Deborah Voigt returns as the warrior maiden Brünnhilde, Bryn Terfel is the mysterious Wanderer, Patricia Bardon is the ancient earth goddess Erda, and Gerhard Siegel and Eric Owens are the nefarious brothers Mime and Alberich.
