About

Championing love and personal heroism in the face of ecclesiastical oppression and political chicanery, Wagner’s third opera explores characteristic themes with terrific energy which culminates in the eponymous Roman tribune’s famous prayer to the gods of his fatherland, followed by a riot which prefigures the young composer’s own abortive career as a firebrand and revolutionary.

Within the timeless and elegant minimalism of Jorge Lavelli’s production, Torsten Kerl brings ringing authority to the title role, supported by the experienced Wagnerian Pinchas Steinberg.

"[Steinberg's] reading of Rienzi, too, was full of energy and vitality, well suited to what this music needs. He got a great performance from the Capitole’s orchestra, which is the best in some 400 miles around. The Choirs were also excellent in a very demanding opera for them. [Torsten Kerl] was excellent all along and it can be considered a luxury to have him as Rienzi in Toulouse." - Seen and Heard International
