The 2020-21 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with Die Frau ohne SchattenThe Woman Without a Shadow, Richard Strauss’s epic fairy tale that grapples with the essence of being human. This encore broadcast from 2013 features American soprano Christine Goerke whose breakthrough performance as the Dyer’s Wife established her as a leading dramatic soprano. German soprano Anne Schwanewilms starred in the title role as the otherworldly Empress who must decide whether to sacrifice someone else’s happiness to achieve her own. Hungarian mezzo-soprano Ildikó Komlósi was the Empress’s scheming Nurse, Danish bass-baritone Johan Reuter sang Barak, the humble Dyer, and German tenor Torsten Kerl was the Emperor. Vladimir Jurowski conducted the Met Orchestra in Strauss’s mesmerizing score.
