Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Herbert Wernicke’s sensational staging of Strauss’s magisterial vision of otherworldly love, which requires a cast of the very best dramatic voices. Tenor Klaus Florian Vogt and soprano Elza van den Heever are the unearthly Emperor and Empress (the woman without a shadow), baritone Michael Volle and soprano Nina Stemme are the earthbound Barak and his wife, and soprano Evelyn Herlitzius is the sinister Nurse.
