About

Lohengrin is staged by the enfant terrible Hans Neuenfels, and offers a thought-provoking production of brilliant visual clarity. The performance by Klaus Florian Vogt in the title role is staggering and impressive. There is beauty and purity in his voice, but in this role in particular, one truly senses something unheimlich, other-worldly, which fits superlatively both with work and production. Conductor Andris Nelsons brings out the best in the Festival Chorus and Orchestra. It is a Lohengrin one does not easily forget and puts Bayreuth back in the vanguard of Wagner interpretation.

‘A magic moment of music theatre.’ – Handelsblatt

‘Bayreuth's incomparable chorus really deserves a medal for its performance here.’ – International Record Review

‘All six solo singers are musically excellent and dramatically persuasive, with Petra Lang's excoriating Ortrud and
George Zeppenfeld's grave yet warm-toned King Henry particularly memorable...’
 – Gramophone
