  • Exclusive Recording of Richard Wagner’s Operas from the Bayreuth Festival, a masterful interpretation from the source of Wagnerian culture itself

  • Richard Wagner’s three-act opera, an exquisitely lyrical piece, characterized by the composer’s romantic vision of the individual’s fight for freedom under an oppressive rule, has been described as Wagner’s most Italianate opera

  • The title-role is particularly suited to the dramatic and musical talents of Peter Hofmann , whose recent adoption of Wagnerian roles has been received with justifiable praise. He leads an exceptional Wagnerian cast, including Karan Armstrong as Elsa and Elizabeth Connell as Ortrud

  • The deep psychological insights of this production, ensuring that this Lohengrin remains one of the most impressive records of the timelessness of Gotz Friedrich’s work as a director

  • It was filmed on the stage of the Festspielhaus in Bayreuth shortly before the start of the actual festival. The filming took place over a period of several days, but without an audience
