About

‘Kober’s conducting...is outstanding and the chorus are superb... The colour that Nylund is able to apply...pays dividends with Elisabeth… Kerl achieves a good balance between the more lyrical side of his character and the Romantic heldentenor... Musically it’s a glorious affair...that finds the true delicacy and poignancy within what is surely the most Romantic of Wagner’s works on the misunderstood, suffering, exiled artist.’ – OperaJournal

‘Camilla Nylund’s Elisabeth and Kwangchul Youn’s Landgraf deservedly received the most applause at the curtain calls.’ – Bachtrack

‘Especially in the Singers’ Contest in the second act the performers act with heart and soul. Baumgarten developed a truly animated stage direction.’ – Opernnetz
