From the Metropolitan Opera:
“In light of the evolving coronavirus COVID-19 situation and in consultation with the office of the Mayor of New York City, Saturday’s performance of Der Fliegende Holländer at the Metropolitan Opera has been canceled. Therefore the scheduled Live in HD transmission has also been canceled. The Met is following the lead of the city, state, and federal elected officials, as well as the recommendations of the Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We apologize for any inconvenience.”
Evgeny Nikitin takes the stage as the mysterious seafarer searching for salvation. Director François Girard, whose mesmerizing production of Parsifal recently wowed Met audiences, returns to stage Wagner’s eerie early masterwork.
