Richard Wagner: Lohengrin – Live from the Bayreuth Festival
Richard Wagner’s three-act opera Lohengrin is characterised by the composer’s romantic vision of the individual’s struggle for freedom under an oppressive rule. The title role is particularly suited to the dramatic and musical talents of Peter Hofmann, whose adoption of Wagnerian roles is received with well-deserved praise. He leads an exceptional Wagnerian cast, including Karan Armstrong, Elizabeth Connell and Siegfried Vogel. The deep psychological insights of this production ensure that this Lohengrin remains one of the most impressive records of Götz Friedrich’s timeless work as a director.
