The production, directed by David Pountney, runs through March 3 at the Cardiff Millennium Centre before traveling to London, Birmingham, Bristol, Milton Keynes, and Swansea (Robert Hayward replaces Terfel after the Birmingham performances).

The opening-night cast included Annalena Persson as Senta, Ian Storey as Erik, Gidon Saks as Daland, Peter Wedd as the Steersman, and Mary Lloyd-Davies as Mary. Carlo Rizzi conducted.
