Despite rumors to the contrary, it seems that Lepage's "machine" will return to the MET at least once more - albeit in five years time - during the 2018-19 season. No cast details yet except for Brünnhilde who will this time be played by Christine Goerke.

Said Peter Gleb of his choice of Goerke for the role. “After she sang in ‘Frau’ the other night, it just made me realize that we’d better invite her sooner rather than later, because I don’t want anybody else stealing her from us.”

And of the machine? Gleb announced that while some critics disliked it he felt that a significant number of members of the public did. Although he did suggest that "the machine" would be getting something of a fine tuning
