Climate protesters twice interrupt Wagner's `Tannhäuser' at Metropolitan Opera

  • Climate protesters caused a pair of interruptions totaling 22 minutes during the opening night of a revival of Wagner's “Tannhäuser” at the Metropolitan Opera. Christian Gerhaher, a German baritone making his Met Opera debut, was singing Wolfram's second-act aria on Thursday night in which he says “und sieh, mir zeiget sich ein wunderbronnen (before me a miraculous spring appears)” when people on either side of the balcony unfurled long vertical banners with white capital letters on a black background. Met general manager Peter Gelb said Friday the other banner had the name of the group, Extinction Rebellion NY, which took responsibility.
